Pentax Medical Launches New Slim Linear Ultrasound Endoscope

August 17, 2017 — Pentax Medical Co. announced the U.S. launch of the Slim Linear Ultrasound Endoscope (EG-3270UK), the company's newest ultrasound endoscope.

The Slim Linear features the latest in transducer design and ultrasound imaging technology bundled into the company's slimmest linear GI echoendoscope available today, according to Pentax. A slimmer insertion tube, a smaller distal end and a shorter bending section help endoscopists access and visualize hard-to-reach anatomy for a wider range of patients.

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) procedures enable doctors to obtain images and information about the digestive tract as well as surrounding tissue and organs for accurate diagnosis and treatment.

"I prefer the Slim Linear for luminal cancer staging, because it is an EUS scope that can do it all in one shot: evaluate the stricture, negotiate the stricture, dilate, stage and FNA," said Anand Sahai, M.D., professor of medicine and chief of gastroenterology at Hôpital Saint Luc, Montréal, Canada. "Most impressively, the image quality of the Slim Linear is exceptional."
