Power of Proven Performance
Stay Confident in Your Outcomes

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.

Minimizing Procedural Risk

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.

Enhancing Patient Safety

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.

Count on Cost Efficiency

Performance matters. Safety is critical. Cost containment is also extremely important when performing ERCP procedures.

Count on Cost Efficiency

Using estimates, it has been determined that the cost per ERCP procedure using an Olympus duodenoscope is roughly $601 including the scope, associated equipment, and medical supply cost. The cost of the same procedure using a single-use duodenoscope is reported to be $2899.2

Single-use duodenoscopes also carry with them additional fees including shipping, store, out-of-package failure, and disposal costs.

Maintain the Highest Level of Care

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.
