Pentax Medical to Showcase New Endo Technologies at UEG Week 2016

October 17th to 19th 2016 sees Vienna hosting this year’s United European Gastroenterology (UEG) week, at which Pentax Medical will be exhibiting its very latest endoscopy technologies.


Japanese company, Pentax Medical, a division of Hoya, will be highlighting its  “Quality in Focus: New Technologies Pushing Boundaries” and showcase its new, innovative OPTIVISTA and SCOPEPILOT products at this October’s UEG week.

The company will also hold a number of training sessions and meetings for its customers at the event, as well as clinical lectures and live demonstrations. These include i-scan certification sessions, discussions related to its Blackbox Innovations™ program and training on the exclusive online customer portal, MyPENTAX Medical, which will be launched at the event.

New to the market, the OPTIVISTA EPK-i7010 High-Definition video processor is a world first for endoscopy, featuring both digital (i-scan Surface and Tone Enhancements) and optical enhancements (i-scan OE) on the same platform. Pentax says this unique combination provides extra information for more accurate endoscopic in vivo diagnosis through improved vessel and mucosal pattern characterization. With the new optical filter producing bandwidth-limiting light, clinicians are able to switch seamlessly in real time amongst HD+ white light and three i-scan modes in order to readily view multiple aspects of tissue structure as pictured.

Also on show is the recently launched the new SCOPEPILOT 3D Colon Navigation System, which Pentax says delivers a true 3D, real-time representation of an endoscopes’ position with pinpoint accuracy when inside a patient’s bowel tract for highly accurate insertion tracking and effective colonic loop management.
