Date: 17 Mar 2016

Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata, is known for its commitment towards ensuring cutting-edge technology for its legions of satisfied patients. Continuing with its tradition of delivering only the very latest in modern medical solutions, the hospital has acquired the SpyGlass™ DS Direct Visualization System at its state-of-the-art Institutes of Gastroenterology. Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata is the first in Eastern India to adopt this technology.

SpyGlassTM is a breakthrough innovation in Cholangioscopy, which overcomes the shortcomings of the traditional cholangioscopes. It ensures an unmatched, direct visualization of all bile-duct quadrants, enabling lifesaving treatment of patients afflicted by hepatobiliary disorders. The system comes equipped with enhanced features which improve visualization and simplifies procedures. It includes a fully integrated SpyScope™ DS Access and Delivery Catheter, and a single-use scope that eliminates probe reprocessing and image degradation over multiple uses.

Dr Mahesh Kumar Goenka, Gastroenterologist and Director of the Institute of Gastrosciences, Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata, said, “The SpyGlassTM DS’s integrated digital sensor offers a 60% enhancement in the field of view and far greater resolution, delivering superior imaging. The wider field of vision allows us to pinpoint the site of the complaint with increased accuracy, and leads to faster recovery and cure. It has added to our already advanced capabilities, enabling us to provide curative solutions that are well ahead of all other alternates currently available. We can now ensure a completely transformed care regimen which guarantees the best outcomes."
