Stand 37 at BSG 2016, in Liverpool, UK, 20-23rd June, visitors can experience how SCOPEPILOT’s three-dimensional responsive positional image delivers a real-time representation of a colonoscope’s orientation for highly accurate insertion tracking and effective colonic loop management. This fully supports quality standards in colonoscopy and training, to ensure smooth and efficient colonoscope navigation and improve patient comfort.
The SCOPEPILOT system provides advanced orientation features to ensure the highest quality standards in colonoscopy and training. These include image rotation on both horizontal and vertical axis to improve differentiation of the insertion tube, as well as zoom functionality for improved evaluation and detection of looping.
A true 3D image is generated by the endoscope’s built-in multidimensional sensors which are induced by a magnetic field generated outside of the patient. These sensors transmit to a control unit where data is processed and displayed in real-time during a procedure, enabling dynamic tracking and handling control of the endoscope. The SCOPEPILOT image responds coherently with the movement of the scope providing smooth and stable image quality.
The colour and contrast of the imagery ensures a high depth of view in order to more easily differentiate colonic loop configuration. SCOPEPILOT’s sensors are integrated into the colonoscope, thus keeping the scope’s working channel free for advanced therapeutic procedures. The system can be activated via the operation panel or remote control when needed at any time during a procedure. Pictures can be taken at the touch of a button and downloaded to a storage device via the USB port in the front panel.
Dr. Parth Paskaran, Consultant Gastroenterologist, Croydon Hospital, London UK, observed, “Endoscopists at all levels of practice will see a huge improvement in their performance thanks to the remarkable design of PENTAX Medical’s SCOPEPILOT. This is a superb example of how technological innovation serves clinical practice in a way that maximises value for clinicians and patients.”
Rainer Burkard, President EMEA of PENTAX Medical, commented: “SCOPEPILOT is perfectly suited to assist with everyday colonoscopy practice and works with our other innovative technologies to support the whole clinical pathway. Our colonoscopes have been found by clinicians to provide excellent tactile feedback, which when used with SCOPEPILOT ensures a high degree of control, particularly when negotiating difficult loops during a colonoscopy.”
