Video Systems, Endoscopic, Video Adapter
Definition : Endoscopic video systems including an external adapter that can be attached to the eyepiece of a fiberoptic endoscope and a camera (also called camera head) for image detection of the interior of body cavities. These systems typically consist of an adapter that can be combined with rigid and/or flexible endoscopes, a camera, and an image processor; they also include monitors and recording devices. Most systems provide accessories such as insufflators and irrigation and suction pumps; typically, the system is mounted in a cart. Video endoscopy systems are used for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, such as gastrointestinal endoscopy, laparoscopy, and arthroscopy. Some systems include an additional adapter to make possible the image detection from operating microscopes.
