January 20, 2015 — Pentax Medical Co. announced the United States and Canadian launch of Pentax Medical i10 Series HD+ (plus) Endoscopes, devices that provide high-resolution, high-definition (HD) images for colonoscopy and gastroscopy procedures that screen for and treat gastrointestinal (GI) disorders.

The announcement was made as thousands of gastroenterologists and other healthcare professionals from around the world convened last October in Philadelphia for the American College of Gastroenterology’s (ACG) 78th Annual Scientific Meeting. Pentax Medical showcased its new endoscopes at the meeting.

The i10 Series provides vivid and detailed images from inside the colon and GI tract for close visualization, image enhancement and high clarity detailed examination of mucosa for improved patient outcomes. These endoscopes have enhanced therapeutic features including larger instrument channels, slimmer outer diameter scopes and shorter bending sections. The endoscopes also feature a lighter ergonomic control for greater physician comfort.

The devices are designed with next-generation imaging features such as 140-degree Effective Field of View (EFOV) for optimization of full frame brightness, resolution and minimized edge distortion. The CloseFocus Examination Range feature allows physicians to get as close as 2mm from the mucosa for even greater magnification and detail evaluation. When combined with the company’s proprietary Pentax i-Scan digital post-processing image enhancement technology, the endoscopes provide an enhanced view of the texture of the mucosal surface and blood vessels.
