Expand your therapeutic capabilities when performing bronchoscopy by utilizing a bronchoscope that now provides high-resolution imaging with a large working channel.
Dramatically improved image size and quality in a slim, easy- to-insert design. The new BF-Q180 has dramatically improved image quality and greatly enlarged image size in comparison to conventional bronchoscopes, yet its distal end measures just 5.5 mm and its insertion tube a thin 5.1mm Superior image quality. The image quality of the BF-Q180 is something new in bronchoscopy. This extraordinary imaging is capable of rendering all details of bronchial tree with superb sharpness and clarity. Enlarged image size for easier observation. The BF-Q180 also provides a much larger image size than it predecessors. Not ony are images clearer and sharper, they are larger and easier to observe so you can perform bronchoscopy with more ease and confidence.
What is NBI? NBI is an optical image enhancement technology that enhances the visibility of vessels and other structures on the mucosal surface. Under NBI the normal white light spectrum is filtered to those narrow light bands that are absorbed by the haemoglobin in the blood. These green and blue bands penetrate only shortly below the surface of the mucosa and enhance the vascular pattern fo this area. The NBI image displays blood containing vessels as dark structures, while normal mucosa appears bright. Through the clear visualisation of the vessel structure it is possible to differentiate between an inflammation and a pathological vascularisation.
