For those needing a colonoscopy, why is it desirable to have a third eye looking back?
#108561. Asked by edmund80. (Sep 07 09 12:50 AM)
The FDA recently approved a third-eye
retroscope, a device placed into the channel
of the endoscope that retroflexes and
transmits an image to a monitor. A polarizer
prevents the light source from blinding
the operator during the retroflex view.
The device could help speed up exams.
