EVIS X1 — Our Most Advanced Endoscopy System

EVIS X1 introduces a range of new, easy-to-use technologies that aim to revolutionize the way pulmonary disorders can be detected, characterized and sampled.

We want to support every endoscopist.
In every procedure. Every day.

BAI-MAC: The Brilliance of Even Illumination

BAI-MAC (Brightness Adjustment Imaging with Maintenance of Contrast) provides a better overview inside the anatomy and thus supports taking procedure quality and examiner confidence to the next level.


Behind the Feature: BAI-MAC

Each image is split into texture and brightness information. The texture remains unchanged, while the brightness of dark areas is automatically enhanced. Combining the original texture information with the adjusted brightness information generates a new, improved image in which close-by and distant areas are evenly illuminated — resulting in an enhanced and clear view within bronchial structures.

The New White Light

By supporting better visibility of different mucosal structures, TXI (Texture and Color Enhancement Imaging) aims to give the examiner more confidence and to improve the quality of bronchial biopsies.


Behind the Feature: TXI

The incoming image is split, and the texture and brightness are enhanced before the separate images are merged back together. Additional color enhancements leading to a larger bandwidth of red tones are made to more clearly define subtle differences in tissue color. In sum, the image is brighter and more contrasted, but still comprising natural red colors.

RDI: The Safeguard for Endoscopic Therapy

Easy detection of large vessels helps find optimal biopsy sites, with the aim of making bronchial biopsies safer and more comfortable.


Behind the Feature: RDI

RDI works by employing specific green, amber and red wave lengths. The latter two penetrate deep into the mucosa, enabling the visualization of deep blood vessels, while the green light provides the contrast required to differentiate the vessels from the surrounding mucosa. As a result, the RDI image can improve the confidence in selecting the sampling spot by avoiding large mucosal vessels.

Insertion Tube Rotation Function

Repetitive and prolonged gestures can result in musculoskeletal complaints or even work-related injuries. To avoid such ergonomic burden as far as feasible, we have equipped our bronchoscopes with an insertion tube rotation function – the improvement of ergonomic scores.

Broad Compatibility

A Unified Platform with Broad Compatibility

One box fits all: EVIS X1 combines advanced knowledge, experience and innovation into one endoscopic system, ideal to support respiratory endoscopy including medical thoracoscopy and gastrointestinal endoscopy.

Additional Features and Technologies

Organic Deep Dive

With an outer diameter of only 4.9 mm, our flagship scope can access smaller bronchi, thus expanding the native HDTV vision during bronchoscopy.

High Imaging Performance

Getting the most out of every image by combining innovative technologies: WL, NBI, RDI, BAI-MAC and TXI. Autofluorescence imaging (AFI) can be added in conjunction with CV-290 and BF-F260.

Designed for Therapy

The new flagship therapeutic bronchoscope EVIS X1 offers a large 3 mm working channel for fast suction and smoke evacuation and native HDTV image quality. Combined with a broad portfolio of EndoTherapy devices, this series aims to improve therapeutic performance.

Considering Safety First

RDI acts as confirmation tool for the physician prior to sampling. RDI enhances the visibility of deep blood vessels and thereby aims to reduce the risk of bleeding.

Supporting Ergonomics

The EVIS X1 system and its range of bronchoscopes are the ideal tools to face even challenging bronchoscopies. The bronchoscopes’ remote functions as well as the configuration of the system functions easily adjust to the examiner’s needs, leading to improved workflows.

Cases and Customer Experience

RDI is facilitating a faster interventional response to bleeding complications by the health care professional.
Irene Sperk, MD

RDI could help you target and perform biopsies more safely.

Case: Referral to follow-up atelectasis caused by tumor. See more Case report kindly provided by Arschang Valipour MD, Assoc. Professor and Irene Sperk, MD / Klinik Floridsdorf, Vienna

RDI reduces stress during bleeding situations and helped me to concentrate during bleeding spot treatment.
Prof Ricky Thakrar

Case: RDI mode facilitates detecting the source of active bleeding after forceps biopsy of a mucosal tumor mass See more Case report kindly provided by Arschang Valipour MD, Assoc. Professor and Irene Sperk, MD / Klinik Floridsdorf, Vienna

TXI provided better visibility of the mucosal tumor in comparison to white light endoscopy alone.
Irene Sperk, MD

I am sure that TXI will be the new white light for our diagnostic bronchoscopy procedures.
Prof Ralf Eberhardt

TXI is really my favourite mode. The details and clearness of the structures of the mucosa and the bronchial wall are amazing. TXI gives a more three-dimensional view.
Prof Ralf Eberhardt

The big advantage of TXI is to get a more three-dimensional view.
Prof Felix JF Herth

With BAI-MAC I can see much deeper within the airways and clearly delineate the different subsegment bronchi...this helps to shorten the duration time of procedures.
Prof Pallav Shah

It is like having better light on your car. You can look more forward and see details earlier.
Prof Ralf Eberhardt

Full screen imaging of EVIS X1 provides less stress for the eyes when monitors are more distant to the examiner and having the tools in the focus increases control of the procedure.
Prof Ralf Eberhardt

No more bending your back and yoga positions while trying to insert EndoTherapy devices... the insertion tube rotation function is a benefit for the examiner and the assistant. To me, this is one of the most amazing functionality that has been added to the Olympus portfolio.
Prof Pallav Shah

A three-millimeter working channel is something I need sometimes especially in therapeutic approaches, with this scope's external diameter less than 6 mm I can work and steer my tools easily.
Prof Ralf Eberhardt

A semi-rigid thorascope allowing single port access to the thoracic cavity. An outstanding device expanding the EVIS X1 toolkit.

With 180° angulation, also the point of entry to the thoracic cavity can be observed, so the chances to overlook lesion below the ribs are further reduced.
