Software, Video System, Endoscopic
Definition : Video system software designed to operate endoscopic video systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of endoscopic video systems typically supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements and images obtained during the endoscopic procedure and also facilitates the sending/receiving of patient data from and to information systems. Endoscopic video system software is usually not available separate from the video system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Dedicated endoscopic video system software is available for a variety of different video techniques, including systems that use a chip camera at the tip of a dedicated catheter, systems using external cameras, and also for systems using ingestible cameras.
