      Endoscopic light sources: choice peculiarities

      Endoscopy is a medical examination technique during which various kinds of medical equipment is inserted through the patient’s natural ways: the esophagus, larynx, anus or urethra. An endoscope is a medical diagnostic equipment for conducting similar manipulations. In fact, it is light-conducting equipment fitted with fiber optics.

      A light source is a special part of endoscopy equipment. High-power lamps (usually halogen or light-emitting diode), placed in metal or plastic cases, are used for that. The average size of such a device is 30 or 40 centimeters.

      Features and functions

      In the far 1960, Karl Storz invented a cold light source. This invention made it possible to generate light outside an endoscope. The light was conducted to the device’s end via optic fibers. Due to this, the light source heat on an endoscope was minimized. As a result, this invention simplified internal organs medical examination procedures.

      An endoscopic light source has to include 1 or 2 universal input connectors. They are necessary for connecting to a light (fiber) cable. If the light conducting source is equipped with one input connector, one lamp is used. The second connector indicates there are two lamps: main and backup. The latter is used when the main one burns out during medical examination.

      If the light source and cable are not compatible, it is necessary to additionally purchase a special connectivity adapter.

      Older models are equipped with halogen or incandescent lamps. Modern light sources are based on Solarc LED or Xenon technologies. If we compare, for example, LED and Xenon sources, the latter have a shorter lifespan and lower color temperature (meaning warmer light).

      How to choose the light source the right way

      While buying light equipment, it is important to determine what kind of examination it will be applied for. Currently, modern light sources are used for a variety of endoscopy examinations:

      •         colonoscopy;

      •         gastroscopy;

      •         hysteroscopy;

      •         nasopharyngoscopy;

      •         cystoscopy;

      •         laryngoscopy.

      Power is one of the important factors of choice: there are 5W, 180W, and 300W devices. Mind that light brightness is decisive for a quality image. Manufacturers also offer portable battery operated projection devices and stationary light sources. Another extremely useful feature in modern devices is a wide range of light adjustments. Smooth brightness adjustment allows the operator to select the most optimal working field illumination.
