and Resect Early."

“…And the better the technology, the better you can do your job.”
Our unparalleled product solution assists you throughout the procedure, from detection to treatment. Because in the fight against colorectal cancer, every adenoma counts.

Here’s Why #EveryAdenomaCounts

Up to
26% (that’s 1 in 4)
adenomas are missed during colonoscopies. 1

An increase of
in adenoma detection rate (ADR) results in a decrease of 5% in the risk of a fatal interval cancer. 3

have a 5-year survival rate of stage I CRC diagnoses,
whereas it’s just 14% for those diagnosed at stage IV. 5

Following the detection of adenomas, the majority of these colorectal polyps can be removed endoscopically for a
50% reduction
in CRC mortality. 6

Adenoma Characterization

EVIS X1 Endoscopy System

Push boundaries of adenoma detection and characterization with EVIS X1’s industry-leading imaging techniques.

Extended Depth of Field (EDOF) — a lens technology providing high image clarity with broad focus and seamless magnification to ultimately improve characterization of abnormalities including polyps.

Texture and Color Enhancement Imaging (TXI) — an enhanced white-light imaging technique that improves both the detection and characterization of adenomas by accentuating differences in texture and color and provides more uniform illumination.

Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) — a blue-light technology that aids in the characterization of adenomas with its ability to visualize micro-capillaries. Demonstrates a 14% increase in the ADR 11 and is endorsed by ESGE and NICE 12, 13.

Bleeding Management

RDI (Red Dichromatic Imaging)
RDI helps to safely and efficiently treat adenomas. It uses different wavelengths to detect bleeding spots and conduct hemostasis more quickly. This aims to result in less stress for the physician during endoscopic therapy and increased patient care.

Hemostatic Portfolio
Gastrointestinal bleedings are versatile and require a dedicated approach to be managed effectively. If it is injection, thermal coagulation, clipping or ligation - the Olympus bleeding management portfolio covers all it takes for a fast, safe and reliable hemostasis.
