Olympus, the global leader in gastrointestinal endoscopy, has designed the EVIS X1 to revolutionize the detection, characterization, and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. This system introduces a suite of user-friendly technologies* that set a new benchmark in endoscopy.

The addition of the ScopeGuide provides a real-time 3D image of the endoscope’s position and configuration within the colon. This innovation simplifies navigation, allowing for quicker identification of loops and significantly reducing patient discomfort.

We are also implementing Carbon Dioxide (CO2) insufflation as a standard practice during endoscopy. This technique allows for rapid bowel decompression, reducing procedural pain, sedation needs, and shortening both procedure and recovery times.

Additionally, our new water pump facilitates water-assisted colonoscopy (WAC), offering two key benefits: 1. Gravitational Effect: Reduces colonic elongation and loop formation, minimizing discomfort and sedation requirements. 2.Enhanced Mucosal Views: Improves adenoma detection rates (ADR) through superior water irrigation.

Our commitment to providing patient-focused, high-quality endoscopy is exemplified by our investment in the latest technology.

Dr. Kejariwal, Consultant Gastroenterologist & Endoscopy lead, emphasized, "The latest EVIS X1 Olympus endoscopic equipment is a game changer in improving patient comfort and increasing diagnosis of disease and detection of pathology."

 At Cobalt Hospital, we are dedicated to advancing healthcare through state-of-the-art technology, ensuring our patients receive the best care possible.

*Some of the benefits of the latest EVIS X1 technology are: • The New White Light – Better Visibility of potential lesions to contribute to higher detection rates.• ENDO AID CADe – Computer aided detection that uses AI to suggest the potential presence of lesions which helps with detection rate, when a lesion appears on the screen the system can alert the endoscopist.• Narrow Band Imaging – The power of accurate diagnosis.  NBI is a powerful and proven optical technology that allows for a reliable optical diagnosis of all major indications in the gastrointestinal tract.• Red Dichromatic Imaging (RDI) is designed to enhance the visibility of deep blood vessels and bleeding sources.  Easier identification of bleeding spots makes haemostasis quicker and easier.• Extended depth of field - Sharp endoscopic images support accurate results in detection, diagnosis and treatment. EDOF allows precise observations through continuous broad focus and seamless magnification. At the same time, the established Dual Focus function provides high magnification.  Contributing to easier identification and a more confident abnormality diagnosis.
