The Complete Solution for Bronchoscopy

Olympus provides a complete range of innovative solutions in the respiratory field. The EVIS EXERA III lineup of bronchoscopes focuses on the optimization of image quality, handling, and processes. With its stunning features, it sets new technological standards.

Innovative equipment, techniques, and procedures for endobronchial ultrasound, peripheral and pediatric bronchoscopy, and other medical and surgical endoscopy solutions complete the range.

Olympus continually innovates to advance the art of bronchoscopy and supports progress in respiratory diagnosis and treatment.

Competence through Experience

Years of experience, combined with cutting-edge medical technology and innovative products, have made Olympus the world leader in endoscopy.

Our commitment to research and development, and our collaborative efforts with the medical community, continue to improve the underlying technology and the quality of patient care and outcomes.

Innovations in Bronchoscopy

Interest in peripheral bronchoscopy is growing among pulmonologists. Technologies such as radial EBUS, the Guide Sheath Kit-approach, and the use of navigation systems have helped to improve confidence to diagnose remote tumors as well. Olympus supports the interventional pulmonologist and continuously develops devices to improve diagnostics in the lung.

New Ultrathin Bronchoscope

The new BF-MP190F ultrathin bronchoscope improves access to deep lung areas, helps approach the lesion, and identifies the lesion using radial ultrasound.

Benefits through Compatibility

Olympus provides ideal solutions for endoscopic imaging. The Olympus EVIS EXERA III system is compatible with endoscopes used in interventional pulmonology, gastroenterology, anesthesiology, otorhinolaryngology, and other surgical areas. For respiratory applications, in addition to the new EVIS EXERA III bronchoscopes, Olympus supports a wide range of products for endoscopic ultrasound, peripheral and pediatric bronchoscopy, and thoracoscopy. Combining such a diverse product lineup with an ongoing commitment to many medical and surgical specialties helps us to advance the art of endoscopy through maneuverability and improved diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities.

Market-Leading Technologies

Insertion Tube Rotation Function

Always looking for ways to improve operability, Olympus has developed a cutting-edge technology which is employed on EVIS EXERA III bronchoscopes. The insertion tube rotation function allows the bronchoscopist to change the insertion tube’s angle of approach by rotating a ring on the control section. This function enhances maneuverability and improves diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities, especially when trying to reach a target in the lung periphery.

Furthermore, this function allows the examiner to bring the bronchoscope’s biopsy port to a position easy to access for the endoscopy assistant, without movement of the distal tip of the bronchoscope. Thus, sampling can be done with ease, in less time, and in better control of the sampling devices.

Outstanding Image Resolution

Imaging performance is driven by the endoscopy system (CV-190 video processor and CLV-190 light source) as well as by the image capture performance of the endoscopes, and the monitor displaying the image.

State-of-the-art image processing with very low levels of image noise is provided by the leading endoscopy system EVIS EXERA III.

For bronchoscopy, the age of HD image quality (image is captured in high-definition quality at the bronchial wall) has started with the introduction of the BF-H190 bronchoscope for standard diagnostic purposes and the BF-1TH190 bronchoscope with a larger working channel diameter for therapeutic interventions. All non-HD bronchoscopes of our top-line series are equipped with high-performance CCDs for enhanced imaging that marks a big step forward from their predecessors.
