Pentax Medical has launched the new C.A.P. HD Duodenoscope (ED34-i10T), one of the first FDA-cleared duodenoscope with a disposable distal cap. Duodenoscopes are used during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), which is a procedure that uses a combination of video endoscopy and fluoroscopic imaging to diagnose and treat conditions associated with the pancreaticobiliary system. The C.A.P. HD Duodenoscope is designed to improve the standards of treatment and safety for both routine and advanced ERCP via improved clarity, access, and performance. It features the HD+ high-definition imaging, improved clinical control, as well as a detachable and disposable distal cap to improve access for cleaning and reprocessing.
As the latest addition to the i10 series of endoscopes, the new C.A.P. HD Duodenoscope continues the organization’s dedication to advanced imaging excellence with HD+ visualization, Pentax i-SCAN, and optical enhancement (OE) technology. These advances are designed to help endoscopists visualize the mucosa in detail, identify abnormal tissue, and locate the papilla for cannulation. Additionally, it offers the lightweight i10 series ergonomic control body for improved comfort and handling, as well as a redesigned elevator mechanism to enhance stability.
