PENTAX Medical Company Key Developments

PENTAX Medical Introduces New High Definition Video Processor for Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Imaging

PENTAX Medical announced that it has launched into Europe, Middle East and Africa a new high definition (HD) video processor for highly detailed endoscopic imaging of the gastrointestinal tract. The new DEFINA GI EPK-3000 performance system combines advanced HD imaging with i-scan image processing to cost effectively deliver excellence in image quality. This enhanced endoscopic in vivo diagnostic ensures faster detection, easier demarcation and characterization of gastrointestinal lesions to support improved patient outcomes. The outstanding HD image quality produced by the new processor enables excellent visualization of gastrointestinal mucosal structures. Also contributing to the clear and more detailed visualization of the mucosa, dynamic range (D-range) expansion provides enhanced far field illumination, making distant darker areas far brighter on the endoscopic image. This assists when trying to view distal tissue, or when it is not possible to obtain a proximal view. The new video processor is exceptionally easy to use with the i-scan buttons placed on the user friendly control panel for ease of access. The best possible clear, still images can also be readily captured during a procedure using the freeze scan function in this mode the processor captures a series of images and automatically compares the sharpness of each to find the best quality still image. In addition, the DEFINA GI has a compact ergonomic design and is lightweight to easily fit into an existing clinical environment.

This preview is taking place to a select group of partners on the 8th June 2016, the day before the 11th Congress of the European Laryngological Society, at the Porto Antico di Genova, Italy. The new DEFINA endoscopy system incorporates HD, high performance VNL-J10 Scopes, designed for all advanced flexible endoscopy ENT examinations, and the DEFINA HD video processor equipped with i-scan imaging technology. The system will be available throughout the Congress for live demonstrations and discussions with experts. By combining a crisp and sharp high quality image with i-scan image enhancement processing technology, the new DEFINA system empowers a wide variety of ENT applications. These include: advanced diagnosis, fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) and functional video stroboscopy examinations. DEFINA incorporates the latest HD chip technology and an improved design of the distal tip allows enhanced light distribution and the system offers excellent therapeutic options through the endoscope’s working channel. Patient comfort is improved by DEFINA as its scopes offer the smallest outer diameter to provide better tolerance. Improved tapering of the distal end optimizes insertion, whilst the endoscope is also very easy to control with user friendly ergonomics provided by a newly designed control body and flexible light guide cable. As DEFINA incorporates the very latest technology and design ensuring enhanced diagnosis and treatment that is both safe and reliable. The new mechanical design of the instrument channel enables the smooth insertion of endoscopic devices, whilst a bifurcated umbilical cable enables stroboscopy. Optimised for both patient and user safety, the system uses an innovative single-use suction control valve design and is STERRAD sterilisation system compatible, ensuring the high standards in hygiene and reprocessing.
