PENTAX Medical Company, a healthcare industry leader in endoscopic imaging, announces the U.S. launch of the EPK-i®5010 Video Processor with PENTAX i-SCAN™, the industry's highest resolution HD+ imaging technology for flexible endoscopy.
"From our experience, the EPK-i®5010 with PENTAX i-SCAN™ has the potential to help physicians improve the characterization and detection of colon disease during surveillance procedures," said Sharmila Anandasabapathy, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, Gastroenterology, Mount Sinai Hospital School of Medicine. "The simplicity of the three i-SCAN settings also makes this technology extremely easy to use."
Studies have shown EPK-i®5010 with PENTAX i-SCAN™ may improve detection and characterization of disease by digitally enhancing blood vessels and mucosal surfaces. PENTAX i-SCAN™ has a quick single-button control to cycle through all three pre-programmed settings.
PENTAX Medical will feature the EPK-i®5010 with PENTAX i-SCAN™ at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) and the Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (SGNA) later this month.
"The EPK-i®5010 with PENTAX i-SCAN™ is a remarkable blend of advanced features that combine to offer a clinically relevant and cost effective solution," said David Woods , President of PENTAX Medical, Americas. "The device paired with our 90i series endoscopes will offer endoscopists an excellent level of visual clarity that may lead to improved detection, better use of health care resources and highly informed treatment decisions, if treatment is necessary."
