Featuring digital and optical enhancements, the Optivista EPK-i7010 offers detailed information for more precise in vivo diagnosis through improved vessel and mucosal pattern characterization.

Optivista’s digital i-scan surface and tone enhancements and i-scan optical enhancement, along with the new optical filter, will produce bandwidth-limiting light.

When aggregated with image enhancement processing technology, the i-scan OE shows the surface structures of blood vessels, glandular ducts and mucosal membrane in higher contrasts than white light.

The digital i-scan technology enables one video processor to offer an enhanced view of the mucosal structures and vascular patterns, helping in early detection, demarcation and characterization.

According to the company, physicians can switch seamlessly in real time amongst HD+ white light and three i-scan modes, which includes i-scan OE to view multiple aspects of tissue structure.

OPtivista also holds capability to carry out video recording, allowing the capture of HD+ video files onto a USB storage device. An external microphone will be used to capture audio recording for video.

Pentax Medical EMEA president Rainer Burkard said: This is just one of a series of exciting product launches for Pentax Medical this year.

"We are looking to increase our support to consultants across GI, ENT and bronchoscopy by adding to our product portfolio over the coming months."

Based in Japan, Pentax Medical offers endoscopic imaging devices and solutions to the global medical community.
