Small Image-Sensor Technologies Enable New Possibilities For Endoscopic
By Tehzeeb Gunja, Senior Marketing and Business Development Manager,
Olympus is continuing their
robust expansion of into the area
endoscopic devices with the recent
introduction of a new electrosurgical
knife and a pair of sphincterotomes.
Kurt Heine, group vice president of
the endoscopy division at Olympus,
points out these new products represent an ongoing commitment on
the part of the manufacturer.
The transition to ever-smaller image sensor technologies has created a burgeoning market, in part driven by the
replacement of conventional open surgeries with minimally invasive procedures. Advanced technology offered by
OmniVision Technologies, a leading CMOS sensor provider
to global medical markets, has resulted in ultra-small medical image sensors supporting a range of minimally invasive,
cost-effective and single-use endoscopic and catheter applications that previously were either done “blind,” using indirect
visualization, or were simply not possible to do at all. Endoscopes and catheters featuring these ultra-small imagers are
now used in neurology, ophthalmology, cardiology, spinal
surgery, urology, and women’s health applications.
