Navigated Colonoscope

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.

How ScopeGuide Works

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.

Key Benefits

By continuously showing an accurate 3D construction of the position and configuration of the endoscope, ScopeGuide increases the cecal intubation rate for both inexperienced and experienced gastroenterologists and improves cecal intubation time.

Precise display of the endoscope configuration helps gastroenterologists to identify and mitigate endoscope loops, which will lead to less patient pain.

Using ScopeGuide and colonoscopes with Responsive Insertion Technology reduces the amount of sedative drugs needed and contributes to quicker patient recovery.

Training using anatomical cues to support trainees and peers in becoming proficient in colonoscopy.

Product Details

3D display with improved modelling

An improved 3D model generates 3D images faster than ever, allowing you to accurately track the endoscope during colonoscopy. 3D imaging also helps in the training of junior staff, by providing immediate feedback about the effect of manipulation of the control section of the endoscope.

Picture-in-picture functionality

When used in conjunction with a monitor with picture-in-picture functionality, the ScopeGuide image is viewed alongside the endoscopic image, meaning you only need to view one monitor, bringing considerable ergonomic benefits.

Compatibility with legacy systems

ScopeGuide 3 is fully compatible with older ScopeGuide endoscopes, ensuring that you continue can continue to use existing endoscopes with ScopeGuide 3.

Compatibility with MAJ-1300 probe

When the MAJ-1300 probe is inserted into the instrument channel of conventional endoscopes, they are upgraded to full ScopeGuide functionality. This enables maximum flexibility within the department.

Basic Techniques of Colonoscope Insertion

Training with CM-15 colon phantom and ScopeGuide.
