These insertion tube tools enable manoeuvrability for physicians in navigating through difficult anatomies.

Pentax Medical intends to make available the 4K video processor and endoscopes commercially in October 2023.

Pentax Medical Americas president David Harrison said: “This platform not only addresses current ergonomic needs but sets future standards in the endoscopy workflow that will ultimately strengthen the provider and patient experience. 

“Together, the system empowers endoscopists with the economic flexibility, a 4K imaging option and manoeuvrability tools they need to improve patient care.”
