A thin telescope-like instrument containing a fiber-optic light source and a camera. It is about the size of a pencil and transmits magnified images of the inside of the joint to a television monitor.
An instrument used for visualization of the interior of a joint cavity; sometimes referred to as a scope.
a type of endoscope that is inserted into a joint for visual examination
a complex tool, much like a camera, that allows the physician to see the inside of a joint (especially the knee)
a device that has lights and a small camera lens at the end that is inserted via small incisions
a fibre-optic instrument that allows doctors to look directly inside a joint, enabling them to diagnose and treat injuries and disease
a fibre-optic telescope that can be inserted into a joint (commonly the knee, shoulder and ankle) to evaluate and treat a number of conditions
a flexible, fiber optic tube equipped with a light source and a viewing lens
a long thin tube with a camera attached
a narrow tube with a light source attached to a tiny video camera, which transmits pictures back to a TV monitor
an electrically powered endoscope intended to make visible the interior of a joint
an instrument used to look directly into joints
an instrument used to look into joints through tiny key hole incisions
an instrument with a system of lenses and
an instrument with a tiny light, a camera and a variety of surgical attachments
a pencil-sized instrument that contains a small lens attached to a miniature camera and lighting system, which magnifies and illuminates the structures inside the joint
a pencil-sized tube with a light and camera attached to the end of it
a pen-shaped instrument to which a tiny video camera and light source is attached
a small camera inserted into the shoulder through a small poke-hole
a small, illuminated camera at the end of a narrow tube
a small, soft tube with a light and lenses on the tip
a small tube-shaped instrument that is inserted into a joint
a small tube that is inserted into the body that consists of a system of lenses, a small video camera, and a light for viewing
a surgical instrument that consists of a tiny tube, a lens and a light source
a surgical instrument that uses fiber optics to allow physicians to see and perform surgery inside joints
a telescope that can be inserted into the joints, enabling the doctor to see directly inside the area
a thin fiber-optic viewing instrument that is inserted into the joint through a small incision in the knee
a tiny tube-like viewing instrument with special optic fibers and lenses that produce a high resolution image of the joint on a television screen
a tiny TV camera that can be inserted into very small incision
a tool that allows the doctor to make a small cut around your joint, and insert a narrow, lighted tube
a tube with a light on its end that is inserted into your knee, and projects an image of the inside of your knee onto a TV monitor
a fibre-optic instrument for the visual examination of the interior of a joint (e.g. the knee or shoulder)
An instrument inserted into the joint cavity to view the interior of a joint and correct certain abnormalities. An arthroscope is an endoscope for use in a joint.
A tiny tube of lenses used for viewing areas inside a joint. Usually attached to a small video camera.
An instrument used to visualize the interior of a joint cavity.
A narrow telescope-like instrument to which a tiny camera is attached. It is inserted into the joint through small incisions, allowing the inside of the joint to be clearly seen.
A thin flexible fiberoptic scope which is introduced into a joint space through a small incision in order to carry out diagnostic and treatment procedures within the joint. An arthroscope is about the diameter of a drinking straw. It is fitted with a miniature camera, a light source and precision tools at the end of flexible tubes. An arthroscope can be used not only for diagnostic procedures but a wide range of surgical repairs, such as debridement, or cleaning, of a joint to remove bits of torn cartilage , ligament reconstruction, and synovectomy (removal of the joint lining). All are done without a major, invasive operation, and, since arthroscopy requires only tiny incisions, many procedures can be done on an outpatient basis with local anesthetic.

A fiber-optic device intended for visualizing the interior of joints; also used for certain forms of joint surgery.
