Digital still image recording during video endoscopy.

Journal Article

With the advances in telemedicine and virtual consultation services comes the need for state-of-the-art endoscopic imaging techniques and equipment. Concomitant with current day concerns of cost containment, the ability to utilize the aforementioned tools in a cost-effective fashion that lowers operating expenses, accurately depicts procedures, and expedites chart documentation is paramount. We report on a fast and efficient way to obtain and store images during endoscopic procedures, which can be stored on standard 3.5-inch floppy disks using an innovative digital image recorder. These images are stored as high-resolution (640x480x24) JPEG files, which can be placed in electronic medical records, imported into Internet Web pages, incorporated into slide presentations, and, most importantly, stored in easily accessed archives.
