The world’s first ever gastrointestinal endoscope to break the 5 mm barrier, the GIF-N180 is a miracle of compact design. Unsedated endoscopy with an Ultrathin scope is an emerging procedure that represents an alternative to conventional EGD. The GIF-N180 allows unsedated EGD procedures, via either transnasal or transoral means, with excellent image performance, that is comparable to the GIF-160.
Despite its super-slim 4.9 diameter, the GIF-N180 delivers superb image quality, clearly rendering subtle textures of the mucosa and fine capillaries inside the upper gastrointestinal tract. This scope also features a 2.0 mm instrument channel, allowing a variety of treatment options.
The ultra-slim design of the GIF-N180 is expected to make it possible to perform routine examinations with little or no sedation, without causing significant discomfort for patients.
The working length of the GIF-N180 has been designed with an appropriate degree of stiffness to prevent looping and ensures that the scope can reach the duodenal bulb when inserted transnasally.
- NBI Function is available in combination with the CV-180 and CLV-180.
- Air/Water nozzle at the distal end keeps the view field clear at all times.
- A 2.0 mm diameter intrument channel enables the use of a number of endo therapy accessories.
