Otoscopy involves utilising a specialised video camera to examine the external auditory canal and eardrum in a non-invasive manner. This is a very effective method of capturing both images and videos to detect disease and abnormalities. The Otoscopic Ekuore system used at AZV is very effective in foreign body detection without exposure to X- Rays. It also has been used frequently for the closer inspection of skin lesions.
