Fine-tuning the endoscope design for screening patients

Fine-tuning the endoscope design for screening patients

 

During a meeting in Munich in June partners from STATICE, SONAXIS, the Medical University of Vienna, and the Helmholtz Zentrum München worked together to advance the opto-mechanical design of the esophageal endoscope that is being developed within ESOTRAC. At the end of the day, great achievements were reached in miniaturization of the capsule, taking clinical application and optical performance into consideration, bringing us another step closer to screening human patients for the early detection of esophageal cancer.
