MERCYASCOT INSTALLS THE FIRST OLYMPUS EVIS X1 SYSTEM IN NEW ZEALAND
MercyAscot is proud to be New Zealand’s first private hospital to have the latest and most advanced Endoscopy imaging platform available for our leading Endoscopists. MercyAscot Endoscopy has recently installed the new EVIS X1 imaging system, providing enhanced imaging, diagnostic tools and improved levels of accurate diagnosis during screening. Together with our excellent clinical staff, we provide outstanding care for patients – from diagnosis to treatment, and relentlessly focus on quality.
What is EVIS X1?
The EVIS X1 system offers improved imaging and diagnostic tools for early diagnosis across colonoscopy, gastroscopy and ERCP procedures. The technology represents a range of new, responsive functions for physicians that aim to revolutionise the way gastrointestinal disorders can be detected, characterised and treated. These include:
- Extended Depth of Field (EDOF),
- Red Dichromatic Imaging (RDI),
- Texture and Colour Enhancement Imaging (TXI), as well as the already known and proven
- Narrow Band Imaging (NBI).
In addition, MercyAscot is rolling out ScopeGuide technology. ScopeGuide provides a real-time 3D image of the position and configuration of the endoscope inside the colon. This makes navigation through the colon easier and loops can be identified quickly. It also provides the capability for training about the techniques of colonoscope insertion.
What some of our leading Endoscopists have said about EVIS X1
“With the new Olympus EVIS imaging system, we were quite surprised and delighted as a group that MercyAscot has decided and agreed to purchase this equipment, because at the moment this equipment is state of the art and gives us the best imaging available out of all the suppliers. So we were quite excited to have it and I am expecting that it will give us the best tools to make our job easier and to give our patients the best plan of management”
