OLYMPUS is proud to introduce DUAL FOCUS – a unique optical imaging technology enabling detailed examination of mucosal changes at the touch of a button. With dual focus, Olympus is helping to revolutionise routine endoscopy.
The EVIS LUCERA ELITE Videocolonoscope CF-HQ290L/I revolutionises routine endoscopy by providing ground-breaking advanced diagnostic features in an easy-to-use routine endoscope. A host of additional features including Responsive Insertion Technology (RIT) ease scope handling assisting in insertion and potentially helping to reduce patient pain.
Narrow Band Imaging now delivers significantly increased brightness and contrast. Previously widely accepted as a tool for characterisation, the improved brightness may open new possibilities for lesion detection.
EVIS LUCERA ELITE endoscopes offer true-to-life HD endoscopic images of breath-taking clarity, delivering the optimum support for accurate diagnosis.
Responsive Insertion Technologies (RIT) is a host of proprietary insertion tube technologies helping you to further increase caecal intubation rates. The insertion characteristics of endoscopes featuring RIT are significantly improved, meaning you can manoeuvre the endoscope more easily and your patient experiences less pain.
The EVIS LUCERA ELITEVideocolonoscope CF-HQ290L/I is at the forefront of Olympus endoscopy technology. By uniting features such as Dual Focus and brighter, more powerful Narrow Band Imaging, the CF-HQ190 offers a truly advanced diagnostic tool packaged in a routine endoscope. In addition to advanced diagnostic features, a range of ergonomic improvements make the endsocope easier to handle throughout the entire endoscope workflow.
Dual Focus, a unique OLYMPUS innovation based upon an innovative two-stage optical system enables the user to switch between two focus settings. With the simple push of a button, the desired observation mode can be selected: “near mode” featuring ground-breaking resolving power for close mucosal observation or “normal mode” for normal observation. Even in “normal mode”, EVIS LUCERA ELITE endoscopes feature an advanced level of resolving power compared to previous generations. With dual focus, Olympus is helping to revolutionise routine endoscopy.
Brighter and higher contrast Narrow Band Imaging
NBI in endoscopes offer the highest level of endoscopic image quality, ensuring outstanding colour reproduction and even offers a significantly increased viewable distance compared to previous generations. The improved contrast combined with this increased brightness means that NBI opens new possibilities in assisting you in lesion detection and characterisation.
Unique Responsive Insertion Technology (RIT)
RIT combines three unique proprietary OLYMPUS technologies: HFT (High-Force Transmission), PB (Passive Bending) and Variable Stiffness. These technologies improve endoscope insertability and ergonomics. Thanks to RIT, the endoscope offers improved operator control when manoeuvring and moves more easily through the colon.
Improved image quality
EVIS LUCERA ELITE endoscopes offer the highest level of endoscopic image quality, ensuring outstanding colour reproduction and even brightness across the whole endoscopic image – decisive in helping you establish a diagnosis. Thanks to improved signal processing, EVIS EXERA III endoscopes feature significantly reduced levels of halation and noise.
Because the CF-HQ290L/I includes ScopeGuide compatibility as standard, you’ll be able to monitor its position inside the colon at all times via a 3D reconstruction on the monitor. The use of ScopeGuide assists in the identification and eradication of insertion tube loops – helping you to increase caecal intubation rates whilst reducing procedure times and patient pain. As ScopeGuide does not make use of X-rays, it can be used continually throughout the procedure.
170° Field of View
Best-in-class field of view enables you to see behind the folds within the colon and reduces the need to operate the angulation controls of the endoscope.
Waterproof One-touch Connector
EVIS LUCERA ELITE endoscopes feature a brand-new connector design no longer requiring the connection of a video or ScopeGuide cable. The connector is fully submersible, eliminating the need for a water-resistant cap.
Designed for ease-of-use
Ergonomically designed control section for enhanced colonoscope manoeuvrability, with easy-to-access controls and user-programmable switches.
