- Markings every millimeter for precise measurements
- Available in two sizes: 15mm and 30mm
Estimating the size of a polyp can have significant impact on the recommended treatment and follow-up. Many physicians, especially those still in training, may overestimate or underestimate polyp size from endoscopic visualization alone. The Napoleon Endoscopic Measuring Device is a tiny ruler designed to sit next to a lesion in endoscopic view allowing for accurate gauging of size.
"The idea for the Napoleon came from the realization that there is no way to accurately measure polyp size during colonoscopy, and surveillance guidelines are based on polyp size and number. Using the Napoleon may help us improve our ability to estimate polyp size and more accurately recommend post-polypectomy surveillance intervals," commented Dr. Mark Pochapin MD, NYU Langone Health.
"The Napoleon device is the first of its kind to allow an accurate measurement of various features under endoscopic imaging. It takes away the guess work and allows the physician to feel more comfortable with polyp size assessment and surveillance interval recommendations, especially during training," stated Micro-Tech USA President Chris Li.
