Narrow Band Imaging

Olympus developed narrow band imaging technology to enhance observation of mucosal tissue. Now with the EVIS EXERA III system, an improved version gives twice the viewable distance and is significantly brighter.

NBI is an optical imaging technology that enhances the visibility of vessels and other tissue on the mucosal surface. NBI works by filtering the white light into specific light wavelengths that are absorbed by hemoglobin and penetrate only the surface of human tissue. As a result, with Narrow Band Imaging, capillaries on the mucosal surface are displayed in brown and veins in the submucosa are displayed in cyan on the monitor.

Don't leave biopsy to chance.

Olympus’ High-Definition Narrow Band Imaging® (HD NBI) technology has enhanced visual observation of mucosal and vascular patterns for five years. Now you can use HD NBI to target suspicious areas in Barrett’s esophagus patients for biopsy. The ability to take fewer biopsies saves valuable time, while providing the same great level of patient care.

Better Interpretation Tool
HD NBI provides contrast, which may aid in the interpretation of mucosal morphology, vascular patterns, and blood vessel appearance in patients with Barrett’s esophagus.

Less Time
HD NBI facilitates targeted biopsies in patients with Barrett’s esophagus, which can save valuable procedure time.
