A new endoscopy system delivers high-definition (HD) image quality, supporting clinical outcomes across a range of diagnostic and therapeutic applications.

The DEFINA system in Pulmonology combines the state-of-the art PENTAX EPK-3000 HD processor technology and two highly maneuverable HD bronchoscopes to deliver sharp, clear images, enabling rapid and highly detailed visualization for improved evaluation of anatomical details in the bronchial mucosa. When combined with i-scan technology, precise detection and demarcation of suspicious areas is facilitated, assisting clinicians in the characterization of various abnormalities to support therapeutic decisions.

The two J10 HD bronchoscopes (EB15-J10 and EB19-J10) of the DEFINA system are designed for ease of operation, with a lightweight body and ergonomically positioned suction valve control, 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˚ distal tip deflection and insertion tube flexibility. The DEFINA system in Pulmonology system is a product of PENTAX Medical (Tokyo, Japan).

“Through our close relations with practicing endoscopists worldwide, we have looked to develop a high-definition video endoscope system that delivers the optimum in visualization, providing crystal clarity,” said Rainer Burkard, president of EMEA at PENTAX Medical. “We have produced a system that also offers high standards of hygiene and ergonomics for the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic applications in the pulmonology field. Our new DEFINA system in Pulmonology is engineered to support the delivery of best clinical outcomes and image quality.”

In compliance with strict hygiene requirements, the new system uses disposable accessories to reduce risk of cross-contamination. It is also compatible with the Sterrad Sterilization System, ensuring that it is clear of multidrug resistant and extreme drug resistant mycobacterium. To further add to patient safety, a disposable suction valve is attached to the endoscope via a click mechanism, and cannot be dislodged.
