Development Background

The growing emphasis in recent years on reducing the cost and improving the efficiency of medical care has prompted interest in the use of endoscope examinations for the early detection and treatment of cancer and other conditions.

The ability of endoscopes equipped with optical magnification to provide an enlarged view of mucosa has the potential for use in detailed examinations for the early detection of small tumors and other conditions.

Optical magnification facilitates detailed observation

Optical magnification aims detailed examination and diagnosis by providing realistic imaging of small features such as blood vessels and the surface patterns on mucous membranes.


The scope with Optical Magnification has a built-in micromachine actuator at the tip of the endoscope, and the lens can be moved by a unique magnifying controller.

As a result, it is possible to obtain a high-resolution magnified image of about 80-110 times.*
