We created a new endoscope to lessen the discomfort of stomach examinations. Early detection of medical conditions is the first step to effective treatment.
Mounted on the tip of the endoscope is a tiny lens, measuring a mere 1.5 to 3 mm in diameter. This high-precision lens helps deliver finely detailed digital images.
Applying innovative technology, Fujifilm developed a new, slimmer endoscope.
Only 5.9 mm in diameter, this endoscope is thin enough to be inserted through the nose instead of the throat. Therefore, it avoids stimulating the gagging reflex.
Because the endoscope touches the root of the tongue, the patient will tend to gag.
The endoscope bypasses the root of the tongue, so gagging is not induced.
