3D Image Navigation
How it works
ScopeGuide provides a real-time 3D image of the position and configuration of the endoscope inside the colon. Navigation through the colon becomes easier and loops can be identified quickly.
Electromagnetic coils incorporated along the length of the dedicated scope's insertion tube generate a pulsed low-intensity magnetic field that is picked up by the receiver dish.
The magnetic pulses are used to calculate the precise position and orientation of the insertion tube to generate a three-dimensional image on the monitor.
Insertion of a flexible scope into a semifixed organ is no straightforward process.
Therefore, loop formation of the scope can occur inside the colon leading to unsuccessful cecum intubation or procedure prolongation.
Inaccurate scope movement can increase patient pain and decrease acceptance of colonoscopy.
ScopeGuide addresses these challenges by providing a continuous, real-time image of the scope position during the entire procedure.
