The future of Endoscopy

Today I have seen and used the future. In the form of a flexible rhinolaryngoscope (nose/throat endoscope). Here it is pictured wrapped up with its screen behind. The wrapped bit is the scope and it is recycled after use on one patient only. So it is never used on another patient and comes out of the wrapper sterile. So almost no chance of nosocomial (hospital acquired) infection. Cost £130. Cost of sterilising a digital HD rhinolaryngoscope £7. View: Bearable as against brilliant with the HD scope.

The future: Is much more expensive, not as good but probably a fraction safer.

Thanks! New tech is usually, but not always, better than old tech. Mike Dilkes

Our technology has come so far and fast over this decade I can’t see anything being too impressive around the corner. However I have been very impressed with your tech and your work Mr Dilkes and many of your fellow surgeons over the past few years.Keep up the great work and I will see you in 2 weeks.
