The rising numbers of gastrointestinal diseases, cancer, and other chronic diseases are fueling the use of endoscopes in the medical sector. Estimated to grow at a CAGR of 6.95 percent, the endoscopy market is witnessing some breakthrough changes with each passing day. To begin with, there is a notable shift from purely diagnostic endoscopic procedures to a combination of diagnostic and interventional treatments. Medical professionals are heavily using endoscopes that are flexible, easy-to-control, and computer-based to generate improved quality visual imagery of the diagnosed areas. Computer-based endoscopic procedures are also much faster and have better graphical and communications capability compared to traditional methods. Natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) is helping both doctors and patients avoid surgical procedures that require incisions through the skin, muscle, nerves, and others. NOTES has further reduced the recovery time and minimized the postoperative complications. Furthermore, computer-based advanced endoscopy is helping doctors to resort to minimally invasive procedures that provide them real-time images and allow them to effectively perform both biopsies and deliver localized treatments on the spot.
Besides technological advancement, the modern-day endoscopes are made out of gold soldering instead of glue to avoid allergic reactions in patients, making the equipment robust against reprocessing detergents. In addition, manufacturers have modified the eyepiece of the endoscopes by replacing traditional light sources like xenon bulbs with the latest white light LEDs. These advancements not only save costs but also boost the efficiency and performance of the endoscopes.
