This new Flexible Video Cystoscope offers the versatility of a flexible endoscope and the advantages of advanced distal chip technology. Based on proven charge-coupled device (CCD) technology, the cystoscope provides the superior image quality that traditionally has been available only with rigid endoscopes and delivers a number of key features and enhanced functionality to office-based and hospital urologists. Compatibility with Karl Storz's Image 1® operating system allows the Flexible Video Cystoscope to be used with a hospital’s existing video system, while the Telecam DX II is ideal for office-based procedures. Three programmable buttons provide simple fingertip control of all camera functions using only one hand. The lightweight design includes an ergonomic grip for ease of handling and increased comfort. Single-lever deflection offers intuitive distal tip control, and continuous controlled dual deflection makes hard-to-reach areas easier to access.
