For more than 50 years, Olympus duodenoscopes have been delivering unmatched control, durability, and imaging for both simple and complex ERCP procedures. Olympus delivers leading performance in scope positioning, stability, and tactile feedback combined with world-class optics and imaging.
Backed by our unique guidewire and sphincterotome technologies, Olympus duodenoscopes provide a trusted, comprehensive ERCP solution.

- Sharp, clear, high-quality imaging that allows easy viewing and observation.
Olympus duodenoscopes provide the reliability and stability needed for precise scope manipulation and proper positioning—the keys to successful performance and the foundation for patient safety.
Olympus’ proven performance and continued innovation have created lasting confidence in our duodenoscopes. ERCP specialists have perfected their technique with our scopes, and they’ve become familiar with the risk profiles associated with ERCP procedures—profiles based on decades of research and data.
Duodenoscope performance is a key contributor to successful ERCP in terms of both cannulation attempts and time spent performing procedures. Olympus duodenoscopes allow full confidence in achieving the proper insertion angle and limiting the need to readjust or reapproach.
Minimizing cannulation attempts, and time spent cannulating can minimize the risk of post-ERCP pancreatitis.1
A time-saving endoscopic procedure means less risk for the patient and better quality of life. More effective ERCP means more lives can be saved.
Patient safety remains Olympus’ top priority—we’re passionate about helping people live healthier, safer lives. Olympus duodenoscopes are FDA-cleared devices and have been proven as a highly effective means of performing ERCP procedures.
Olympus gives you access to safety-based partnerships, training programs, and a support network focused on infection prevention. The Olympus Care Program combines a variety of support offerings to help you get the most from your Olympus duodenoscopes including, Duodenoscope Maintenance and Care, Customized Education and Olympus Service.
Performance matters. Safety is critical. Cost containment is also extremely important when performing ERCP procedures.
Using averages, it has been determined that the cost per ERCP procedure using an Olympus duodenoscope is roughly $246 including the scope and associated equipment (depending on facility inputs2). The cost of the same procedure using a single-use duodenoscope, is reported to be closer to $2,500. 3
Single-use duodenoscopes also carry with them additional fees including shipping, storage, out-of-package failure, and disposal costs. At this point, there is no reimbursement for single-use duodenoscopes, leaving patients and facilities with an additional cost burden.
Nothing is more important than the health and safety of your patients. With this in mind, Olympus stays true to patient care by helping you perform at your very best.
A challenging ERCP is no time to compromise on the quality or performance of your key instruments. With your Olympus duodenoscope in hand, you can feel confident in delivering the best outcome for your patient.
