IDS case study: A reliable eye on health

Automatic visual inspection of rigid endoscopes

In medical diagnostics and therapy, endoscopes are used to diagnose and minimally invasively treat a variety of diseases. In order to avoid risks for patients and medical staff, the proper functioning of these vital medical devices is indispensable. Reliable quality testing should above all exclude risks from infections and injuries, but also misdiagnoses. In many countries, hospitals are therefore required by law to regularly check and maintain their endoscopes.
