Diagnostic Hysteroscopy image

The positive predictive value (PPV) of diagnostic hysteroscopy vs saline infusion sonography (SIS) for the detection of myomas and polyps in patients with abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) has long been debated. Most published studies have concluded that diagnostic hysteroscopy and SIS are relatively equivalent diagnostic tools for the detection of intrautine myomas and polyps. Traditional AUB studies have been based on histologic diagnosis established through either dilatation and curettage (D&C) or blind endometrial biopsy but these diagnostic procedures do not detect all endometrial abnormalities. Only hysteroscopy allows for direct visualization of the uterine cavity and abnormalities can be biopsied immediately. The WiCAM™ Wireless Digital Endoscope Camera & LED Light Source is a game changer for the Infertility/Reproductive Health market place. The (SIS) has long been ...

WiCAM® in Cystoscopy image

The WiCAM® wireless camera system is proving to be a cost effective option for in-office cystoscopy. This procedure can be done both in a hospital or in a physician’s office. Thanks to medical advancements, most patients have the ability to choose where they have the procedure done. The office setting offers a less stressful environment for an already nerve-wracking experience. The vast majority of Urology clinics in the United States have some type of visualization method, even if it is the utilization of “direct vision” through a flexible or rigid scope. The percentage of Urologists using a camera tower to project images to a video monitor is a bit more elusive. I have been very surprised to observe how many ...

WiCAM™ Providing Urology Treatment for BPH image

In recent weeks, the WiCAM™ Wireless Digital Endoscope Camera System has provided visualization and camera equipment in support of a new office based Urology treatment for BPH. The company is NxTHERA and the BPH treatment is Rezūm. Rezūm is a transurethral needle ablation* procedure to treat BPH that can be performed in a clinic or out-patient setting.

WiCAM™ Wireless Digital Endoscope Camera – Bridging the Technology Gap image

The WiCAM™ Wireless Digital Endoscope Camera provides physicians with cost effective in-office visualization capability. In the GYN realm, approximately 80% of physician offices do not have hysteroscopy equipment due to the prohibitive costs associated with acquisition and upkeep. Over 4.6 million women seek GYN consultation each year with AUB (abnormal uterine bleeding) It is generally accepted that the standard of care is to perform a D&C to obtain an endometrial sampling. This is a procedure performed “blind” in 80% of GYN offices in this country. Without a hysteroscope, accurate diagnosis can be a challenge. This is not a new realization, as far back as 1989 studies have shown that blind D&C is less accurate for diagnosing AUB than was hysteroscopy ...
