Medical imaging allows medical professionals to diagnose and treat diseases with minimal need for invasive surgical interventions. However, to improve diagnosis and therapy, it is crucial the imaging tools provide the highest quality.

One of the most widely used tools in medical applications is the endoscope. Specific names exist for endoscopes targeting specific organs (otoscope, colonoscope, etc.), but the general purpose of any endoscope is the same: to allow a medical professional to visually inspect the inside of the patient’s body.

While optical endoscopes have existed since the early 1800s, a modern endoscope comprises a miniaturized camera module with an integrated lighting system and a rigid, semi-rigid, or flexible rod used to drive the system inside the patient’s body.

With DXOMARK Analyzer, it is possible to evaluate the images taken by the endoscope using precise KPIs that allow medical professionals to select, validate, or certify their equipment. As medical imaging is a critical and highly regulated domain, DXOMARK Analyzer relies on internationally recognized standards (for example, ISO and IEEE) in the evaluation of its KPIs.

Use Cases:
  • Otoscopes, rhinoscopes, and other types of medical endoscopes
  • Industrial endoscopes for nondestructive testing of medical equipment
  • Robot assisted surgery
  • AR/VR assisted diagnosis
Measurement and KPIs:
  • Field of view
  • Distortion
  • Lighting uniformity / Shading
  • Resolution / SFR
  • SNR
  • Color rendering
