Pentax Medical Launches New High-Definition Pulmonology Endoscopy System

System delivers HD images for clear, fast and more detailed endoscopic visualization of bronchial mucosal structures

Pentax Medical, Defina endoscope system for Pulmonology, EMEA market

July 5, 2016 — Pentax Medical announced the launch of a new high-definition (HD) pulmonology endoscopy system in the European, Middle Eastern & African (EMEA) markets. The new Defina system in Pulmonology combines a state-of-the art HD processor with i-scan imaging technology and two highly maneuverable HD bronchoscopes. This combination serves to deliver high HD image quality, which subsequently supports clinical outcomes across the complete range of diagnostic and therapeutic applications.

The HD Defina system delivers sharp and clear image quality, enabling rapid and highly detailed visualization for the improved evaluation of anatomical details of the bronchial mucosa. This in combination with i-scan technology facilitates the precise detection and demarcation of suspicious areas and assists in characterization of abnormalities to support therapeutic decisions.

Fully complying with increasing hygiene requirements, the system uses disposable accessories to reduce the risk of cross-contamination. It is also STERRAD-compatible, ensuring that it is clear of multidrug-resistant and extreme drug-resistant Mycobacterium. Further adding to patient safety, the new disposable suction valve is safely attached to the endoscope using a click mechanism that cannot be dislodged. This also delivers strong suction to efficiently remove secretion and control bleeding for precise sampling.

Used in conjunction with the EPK-3000 HD processor, the two HD bronchoscopes (EB15-J10 and EB19-J10) of the Defina system in Pulmonology feature a new-design lightweight control body with an ergonomically positioned suction valve, angulation levers and remote control buttons. Effortless maneuverability within the bronchus, with easy access even to the right upper lobe of the lung, is made possible due to the bronchoscopes’ 210-degree distal tip deflection and insertion tube flexibility.
