The NBI Atlas for Urology has been developed in collaboration with world-renowned urologists from North America, Asia and Europe. Designed as an educational tool, it allows clinicians to view different image sets in white light and NBI light to advance their understanding of endoscopic imaging using Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) technology. Histology is also included for many cases.
This detailed interactive atlas includes more than 100 high resolution images and emphasizes those conditions for which NBI is considered particularly valuable. Of particular interest is the comparison tool that makes use of a slider handle to show and reveal images in white light vs. NBI.
NBI is an optical image enhancement technology that enhances the visibility of vessels and other tissue on the mucosal surface. Narrowband illumination, which is strongly absorbed by hemoglobin and penetrates only the surface of tissues, is ideal for enhancing the contrast between the two. As a result, under narrowband illumination, capillaries on the mucosal surface are displayed in brown on the monitor, and veins in the submucosa are displayed in cyan.

Great Guide for Patients
This is a nice simple tool to show my bladder cancer patients what is going on within their body. I'm a firm believe that patient education is key and ultimately leads to better quality of care.
You can explain diagnosis but sometimes pictures speak more than words.
Amazing a Demonstration of Groundbreaking a Medical Technology
As a user of Olympus' Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) in Urology for the last 8 years, it is great to finally have a valuable resource to demonstrate the clinical benefits to my patients and peers.Having a wide range of clinical images and histology right at my fingertips is invaluable. The slider side-by-side image is truly awesome!
