CP-EBUS provides a view parallel to the shaft of the bronchoscope--the angle of view is 90[degrees] and the direction of view is 30[degrees] forward oblique
. Colour flow and Doppler features permit identification of vascular, ductular, and cystic structures.
The special control handle allows the user to adjust the prism on the front of the scope to inspect right angle, forward oblique
or retrospective viewing angles.
The instrument can spot corrosion, leaks, cracks or other defects through openings as small as 0.19 in., and it provides direct, right-angle, forward oblique
or retrospective viewing angles with 10-85[degrees] fields of view and 360[degrees] orbital viewing.
The low-level forward oblique
imagery gathered for the Alliance right-of-way is expected to be converted to a continuous photomosaic, indexed by kilometer post and frame-grabbed at distances appropriate to ensure accurate identification of surface type and condition.
