We have developed a new recording system for endoscope images with the popular mini digital video (mini DV) camera. A special adaptor screws onto the lens top, and either a flexible or rigid endoscope can be attached to the camera. Using this system, we can monitor not only the endoscopic images but also the patient's condition. Satisfactory images can be obtained even with the finest fiberscope. Nevertheless, our new system costs only $1,000. Therefore, the system is both cost-effective and useful for the outpatient clinic or casual setting or for house calls for the purpose of patient education.
