Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston Chooses Reduced-Radiation Technology for Endoscopy Center

Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston recently added radiation-saving technology to their Endoscopy Center. With a full renovation of their two gastroenterology rooms. The E-View.AI is the most advanced interventional endoscopy system available and is the only ERCP fluoroscopy system proven to reduce radiation exposure by up to 84% – reducing the radiation risk to both staff and patients.

For over a century, Brigham and Women’s Hospital has been a leader in patient care, medical education, and research. The Hospital is an international leader in virtually every area of medicine. U.S. News & World Report recognizes Brigham and Women’s Hospital as among the best hospitals in many specialty areas – including gastroenterology and GI surgery.

The Endoscopy Center, led by Dr. Linda Lee, provides advanced endoscopy services including ERCP, EUS, and endoscopic mucosal resection. The program’s world-class reputation is proven by its status as one of only 17 endoscopy programs in the world to be named a Center of Excellence by the World Organization of Digestive Endoscopy.

The Omega E-View.AI offers several advantages that conventional, non-AI systems cannot:

  • AI detects the doctor’s region of interest – allowing for hands-free operation
  • Maintains the full field of view (FOV) while delivering the highest level of image quality for the region of interest (ROI)
  • Automatically reduces radiation exposure to patients and staff by up to 84%

The E-View.AI is the only lab designed with features specifically developed for ERCP and image-guided endoscopic procedures.

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

The dedicated clinicians at the Endoscopy Center use both conventional and state-of-the-art approaches like the E-View.AI to diagnose and manage cases – providing world-class care to their patients.

As a leader in improving healthcare quality and safety, Brigham and Women’s Hospital is at the forefront of technology and continues to help develop some of the industry’s best practices.
