  • Resectoscopy
  • ENT (Ear – Nose – Throat)
  • Nephroscopy
  • Cystoscopy
  • Hysteroscopy

Yes, you can customize your endoscopy tower to fit the specific needs of your medical examinations and the needs of your patients. Depending on the procedure being performed, you can add or remove different components from the tower.

Based on IEC 60601-1, an authorized technician should conduct an annual safety check on each unit comprising your endoscopy towers. This check aims to ensure proper functionality of all components and prevent any potential issues.

Before using the camera, you must perform a white balance to achieve the best possible image. How to perform this is described in the IFU.

For a sterile change of endoscopes during surgery from e.g. ⌀10 mm to ⌀5 mm, we recommend the use of a swap adapter. With this device, the user can maintain sterility in the easiest way.

The main advantage of 4K UHD imaging compared to FullHD is the amount of information, that can be reproduced. While FullHD analyzes the information with 1920 x 1080 pixels =2,073,600 pixels, the amount of information covered in 4K UHD is 3840 x 2160 = 8,294,400 pixels. Therefore, the 4K camera offers 4 times more information to the user.

The perception of the image is subjective. To improve this, the user has a lot of possibilities. The image is created from the interaction of various aspects:

  • optics
  • light source
  • camera
  • tv-adapter
  • monitor

Due to this range, many adjustments are possible.

  1. As a first step the user should try to adapt the light output of the light source and check the light transmitting cable for efficiency.

  2. In the second step, the user must check all the other components for functionality.

  3. Only in the third step we recommend changing settings of the camera. Here the user can change the color settings, gamma value, contrast, brightness, and more.

  4. As a last step, the user can adjust the settings on the monitor.

Research and studies show better postoperative outcomes if the insufflation gas is pre-heated and humidified. This shortens the hospital stay and doctor’s time. Additionally, this technique offers an ecologic benefit.

A 4K UHD camera shows more details than a FullHD device. To take advantage of its potential, it makes sense to use these 4K-optimized scopes: The sharper cut lenses help to capture more details – resulting in a better view.

The BT.2020 color space is specified by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). This color space is close to the color sensitivity of the human eye. Therefore, users experience very realistic images on their monitor. Our AlphaNovoCam 4K UHD can cover this BT.2020 color space.
