Adding a new dimension to colonoscopy
ScopeGuide is an exclusive Olympus technology designed to provide a real-time 3D image of the shape and configuration of the colonoscope inside the body. ScopeGuide assists with finding the optimal location to apply abdominal pressure, easier, more confident scope insertion, and early loop identification. The use of ScopeGuide during colonoscopies may lead to less patient discomfort.

By seeing the shape of the entire scope as it moves through the body, ScopeGuide provides additional visual information that is particularly helpful during difficult colonoscopies. The endoscopist can evaluate the extent of looping and get a better sense of which rotational maneuvers will be required to straighten out various loop formations that can occur during colonoscopy.
ScopeGuide dedicated endoscopes, including the high-definition CF-H180DL colonoscope, deliver Olympus' renowned optics along with its proprietary variable stiffness technology for exceptional imaging performance and maneuverability.
LOOP MANAGEMENT ASSISTANCE
Via an external hand coil, ScopeGuide can help identify the optimal location for abdominal pressure. By moving the hand coil across the patient's abdomen, an assistant can locate the precise position of the scope relative to the patient's body and then apply hand pressure to the abdomen as needed.
