Hospital Gains Dedicated Endoscopy System, Improves Efficiency

A leading hospital in Boston recently installed an innovative image-guided system in their advanced endoscopy center. The medical team at this hospital is always investigating new technologies to diagnose and treat gastrointestinal conditions earlier and more effectively.

The center is a world leader in endoscopy and performs nearly 30,000 endoscopic procedures each year across their hospital system. Among the procedures performed is cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) – a minimally invasive method to treat bile duct and pancreas conditions. About 2000 ERCPs are performed a year at the hospital.


The Omega E-View™ is the only lab designed with features specifically developed for ERCP and image-guided endoscopic GI procedures. The Omega lab provides world-class technology with superior imaging and safety for patients and staff.

The Omega System provides several technological advantages that traditional IE systems cannot:

  • ERCP motorized table for better patient positioning
  • Large field of view flat-panel detector offers superior image quality
  • Exclusive scatter radiation protection for both patient and staff
  • Pivots out of the way for full patient access and for non-X-ray procedures
