The PENTAX EC-2990i colonoscope has an ultra-slim insertion tube diameter of 9.8mm, which provides easier insertion and less discomfort to the patient. The scope is particularly useful for navigation in difficult cases, such as paediatric patients, patients with a small anatomy and adults with gastrointestinal disease or post-operative adhesions. The small bending radius of the distal tip and the unique Graduated Flexibility allows for excellent manoeuvrability, while the 2.8mm working channel offers compatibility with a wide range of instruments to enable biopsies and options for further therapeutic intervention. In order to support cleansing and treatment procedures, this endoscope is also equipped with a Forward Water Jet System.
The unique HD+ resolution of the PENTAX EC-2990i colonoscope, combined with excellent illumination and the cutting edge ‘i-scan’ image processing technology, provides detailed visualisation of the colon and class-leading detection, demarcation and characterisation of tissue abnormalities;
“Our new ultra-slim colonoscope means less discomfort to the patient and is ideal for more challenging cases. Our unrivalled HD+ resolution provides physicians with an outstanding image of the colon that can improve the detection and characterisation of lesions and polyps,” said David Moore, Managing Director, PENTAX UK Ltd. “PENTAX is the only company offering this type of ultra-slim HD+ colonoscope in a range of lengths, which also includes a Forward Water Jet System and is compatible with a range of PENTAX HD+ processors.”
