TGF-UC180J EUS Scope
The design of Olympus' EUS scope provides a reduced distal tip length. The combination of a shorter tip with wider angulation capabilities (180 degrees up) delivers enhanced maneuverability and handling. In addition, the scope's straight channel enables direct or head-on delivery of therapeutic devices to the target site, potentially providing easier access to regions of interest.
The scope's enhanced maneuverability and handling offers the potential to improve visualization of fundus diseases. In addition, an auxiliary water jet potentially provides better acoustic coupling as well as savings in accessory costs by eliminating the need for a balloon.
The TGF-UC180J is powered by the ProSound F75 Ultrasound Imaging Platform, which aids in more accurate diagnosis of diseases and cancers of the gastrointestinal (GI) track and surrounding organs. The scope is also backward compatible with prior generation processors, including the Olympus EU-ME1 and Hitachi Aloka SSD-α10.
The advanced design of the TGF-UC180J scope can help healthcare providers address the key requirements of healthcare reform, including:
- Increased quality of care — EUS provides easy identification and more accurate staging of diseases and cancers in the GI tract.
- Decreased costs — Interventional procedures can be performed in the GI suite, which saves operating room (OR) time. In addition, the forward-viewing scope does not require a balloon, reducing accessory expenditures.
- Enhanced patient satisfaction — EUS offers patients a less invasive treatment compared to surgical interventions, and procedure times may be shorter.
