The Evis X1 received FDA clearance earlier this year with two compatible endoscopes, the GIF-1100 gastrointestinal videoscope and the CF-HQ1100DL/I colonovideoscope. It is indicated for use in the upper digestive tract and the lower digestive tract.
Evis X1 has an ErgoGrip control section on the endoscopes that is 10% lighter than the company’s previous generations of the device, according to Olympus. It designed the endoscopes to increase user comfort and scope handling and to accommodate users with small hands.
“Olympus is thrilled to bring our most advanced endoscopy system to GI practitioners in the U.S.,” Richar Reynolds, president of the Medical Systems Group for Olympus America, said in a news release. “The remarkable new technologies for visualizing the GI tract are designed to help physicians see more and do more to help their patients.”
Other features on Evis X1 include:
- Texture and color enhancement technology increases the visibility of lesions and polyps by enhancing image color and texture during endoscopic screenings.
- Red dichromatic imaging technology enhances the visibility of deep blood vessels and bleeding points.
- Brightness adjustment imaging with the maintenance of contrast technology to correct the brightness levels in dark areas of the endoscopic image while maintaining the brightness of lighter areas to increase the total view distance.
- Narrow Band Imaging enhances visual observation of mucosal and vascular patterns by using blue and green wavelengths absorbed by hemoglobin.
- The touch panel on the CV-1500 allows clinicians to start all procedures and settings and control image data from one device.
- MyCV mode allows a physician to personalize imaging configurations and turn multiple functions off and on with a single scope button.
