Forward Viewing Curved Linear Array (TGF-UC180J)

Endoscopic Ultrasound

Forward Viewing Curved Linear Array (TGF-UC180J)

As part of the Olympus EUS solution, the newly introduced forward-viewing, curved linear array Olympus TGF-UC180J ultrasound gastrovideoscope expands treatment options for interventional EUS procedures.  Designed to meet the growing need to perform interventional procedures, the TGF-UC180J provides a zero-degree working channel, forward-viewing endoscopic optics and a transducer design that enables excellent resolution and penetration. The TGF-UC180J is the only echoendoscope that is able to provide these features in one scope.

Key Benefits

The TGF-UC180J offers unique features and benefits that no other EUS scopes can offer.
  • Short distal tip:  The distal tip design allows for a very short rigid section leading to potentially easier handling, intubation and maneuverability.
  • Straight working channel:  A straight (zero-degree) working channel provides direct EndoTherapy delivery to the region of interest with greater puncture force and control.
  • Extensive angulation: The 180 degree up angulation is wider than any other ultrasound scope which could provide better access and visibility to areas that traditionally have been difficult to observe, like the fundus.  
  • Auxiliary water channel:   Flushes away blood and residue for a clear view at all times, and eliminates the need for a balloon.
