ENDOCAM Logic 4K – The new definition of sharp

The ENDOCAM Logic 4K Camera System optimizes image acquisition and processing for 4K – from the generation of the image at the tip of the endoscope to the reproduction on the high-resolution monitor. It is able to process the 4K signal in the original resolution without the need for extrapolation. Richard Wolf’s powerful, energy-efficient LED light sources and new PANOVIEW ULTRA Endoscopes provide the necessary brightness for 4K resolution. The lightweight and ergonomic camera head is autoclavable. Special visualization modes can also facilitate better tissue differentiation depending on the situation. As a future-oriented, universal solution, the 4K platform can be used efficiently in all endoscopic specialties and can be incorporated within operating-room integration systems like core nova. The camera controller has been designed for flexible applications such that existing HD camera heads are also fully compatible.

Holmium:YAG Laser MegaPulse 70+

Richard Wolf recently launched the Holmium:YAG Laser MegaPulse 70+ for minimally invasive therapy for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and stone therapy.

Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate (HoLEP) can be carried out easily with the power of 70 watts. The laser’s high frequency and power allow it to also be used for fast, effective stone therapy, providing users with a high-speed system for stone lithotripsy.

This is a unique, special 200 μm Power Laser Fiber with a narrow diameter that generates a power output comparable to that of a 272 μm fiber. It is therefore ideal for flexible ureterorenoscopy. Automatic laser fiber recognition using RFID technology provides the user with convenient identification of the laser-fiber size. Recognition can also be carried out even when the laser fiber is in sterile packaging. You can find more in-depth information at http://megapulse70plus.richard-wolf.com.

ENDOCAM Flex HD – The innovative imaging concept

Increasing cost pressures in hospitals are forcing institutions to achieve higher efficiency.

ENDOCAM Flex HD is a cost-effective, space-saving and user-friendly system. This compact and affordable camera solution enables hospitals and private physicians to carry out endoscopic treatments flexibly and cost-effectively.

Flexible sensor endoscopes compatible with the ENDOCAM Flex HD Camera have been designed to cover the variety of applications in urology. The BOA vision EF is suited for a number of urological interventions in the area of ureterorenoscopy thanks to its unique small diameter. The COBRA vision EF is the only flexible dual channel sensor URS on the market specifically designed for stone therapy.

The new flexible vision EF Sensor Cystoscope meets all the requirements for a modern and patient-friendly system. Particular features are the slim and flexible sheath, the superior image quality, and the homogeneous illumination provided by two distally installed, high-power LEDs. Thanks to this integrated LED illumination and automatic light control and focusing, an additional light source is not required. The user can “Plug & Play”, without having to white balance in advance.

The ENDOCAM Flex HD paired with the new flexible bronchoscopes (with distal sensor and LED illumination) delivers a first-class image of the respiratory tract. In addition, this revolutionary system from Richard Wolf delivers optimum results in pulmonology, from routine biopsies to complex interventions.

core nova – Operating room (OR) integration on any scale

Today, operating-room integration is standard for new-builds, conversions and renovation of operating theaters. However, there are often issues during continuous operation relating to whether and how systems of this type can be integrated. core nova from Richard Wolf offers a simple answer to these issues. Richard Wolf’s operating-room integration system adapts flexibly to the specific requirements of a hospital, whether positioned on an equipment cart or as a fixed installation.

Many functions of the integration system can be realized on a mobile equipment cart, which can be used for one or for several operating theaters. For example, device control or documentation in DICOM is possible with a mobile system.

core nova is a lean solution that does not require a technology room and only entails minimal cabling requirements. This is reflected in short installation times. If appropriate preparations are made, set-up can be carried out in less than a day. This is a major benefit, particularly during continuous operation or in the case of renovations and tight timetables.

The scalability of the system means it can be subsequently supplemented with additional functionality. The full scope of supply can then be implemented, including such features as convenient communication solutions and the integration of additional image sources.

Richard Wolf delivers individualized solutions with core nova. The simplicity of installation and application is superior to comparable systems. core nova achieves a new level of operating comfort.
