How it works
ScopeGuide 3 shows an accurate 3D reconstruction of the position and configuration of the endoscope position within the colon. Navigation through the colon becomes easier and patients experience less discomfort, as loops can be identified more quickly.
Electromagnetic coils incorporated along the length of th 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.
Also, 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 to increase your potential.
