Pentax Medical now offers its HD Stroboscopy system for ENT applications across Europe, Middle East and Africa. The HD Strobe system provides a premium solution to optimise voice assessment, affording six times the image detail of standard-definition video to assist in the detection of subtle pathology.
The system allows the improved visualisation of anatomical structures such as: tongue, base of tongue, uvula, epiglottis, vocal folds, false cords, arytenoids, velleculae and pyriform sinus. Physiologically, the HD Stroboscopy system allows vibration, symmetry, periodicity, amplitude, mucosal wave and closure to be captured in clear HD images.
The HD Stroboscopy system consists of the strobe light source and HD recording module, delivering sharp, vibrant HD 1080i video images and unparalleled stroboscopy. The camera’s CCD element is exposed to the moving image by a pulse of high intensity light that lasts a fraction of a second (0.000005). This time period represents a very small percentage of the glottal cycle, thereby producing a crisp image with good edge detail and a clear picture of vascularity. Superior pitch tracking, throat mic or EGG input for Fo detection ensures the system quickly locks to the voice’s fundamental frequency. The system also includes enhanced recording facilities including easy report generation, still image capture and DVD burning.
