Pentax Medical Company, a producer of endoscopic imaging systems, launched its EPK-i5010 Video Processor with PENTAX i-SCAN, a high-resolution HD imaging technology for flexible endoscopy.
“From our experience, the EPK-i5010 with PENTAX i-SCAN has the potential to help physicians improve the characterization and detection of colon disease during surveillance procedures,” said Dr. Sharmila Anandasabapathy, associate professor of medicine, gastroenterology at the Mount Sinai Hospital School of Medicine. “The simplicity of the three i-SCAN settings also makes this technology extremely easy to use,” he says.
In addition, studies have shown the EPK-i5010 with PENTAX i-SCAN may improve detection and characterization of disease by digitally enhancing blood vessels and mucosal surfaces, Pentax Medical says. The PENTAX i-SCAN has a quick single-button control to cycle through all three pre-programmed settings, according to the company.
