A low-cost, endoscopic, digital, still and video photography system for ENT clinics

  • B W Howes (a1) and C Repanos (a2)
Abstract

Image capture systems that display and record endoscopic images are important for documentation and teaching. We have modified a universal serial bus microscope to couple with most clinical endoscopes used in our practice. This very economical device produces images suitable for teaching, and potentially for clinical use. The implications of this could be significant for teaching, patient education, documentation and the developing world.
