3D colonoscopy navigation system
The new SCOPEPILOT navigation control unit provides true 3D representation of an endoscope’s position when inside a patient’s bowel tract. It delivers a real-time representation of a colonoscope’s orientation for highly accurate insertion tracking and effective colonic loop management. This fully supports quality standards in colonoscopy and training, to ensure smooth and efficient colonoscope navigation and improve patient comfort.
The SCOPEPILOT system provides advanced orientation features to ensure the highest quality standards in colonoscopy and training. These include image rotation on both horizontal and vertical axis to improve differentiation of the insertion tube, as well as zoom functionality for improved evaluation and detection of looping. A true 3D image is generated by the endoscope’s built-in multidimensional sensors which are induced by a magnetic field generated outside of the patient. These sensors transmit to a control unit where data is processed and displayed in real-time during a procedure, enabling dynamic tracking and handling control of the endoscope. The SCOPEPILOT image responds coherently with the movement of the scope, providing smooth and stable image quality. The colour and contrast of the imagery ensures a high depth of view in order to more easily differentiate colonic loop configuration. SCOPEPILOT’s sensors are integrated into the colonoscope, thus keeping the scope’s working channel free for advanced therapeutic procedures. The system can be activated via the operation panel or remote control when needed at any time during a procedure. Pictures can be taken at the touch of a button and downloaded to a storage device via the USB port in the front panel.
