Purpose: We describe a new method of taking pictures from endoscopic images using a digital photo camera coupled to the endoscopic lens without an adapter.Materials and Methods: We used a digital camera with 3.3 megapixel resolution and 6 X optical zoom. the camera was coupled to the endoscopic lens with no special adapter. the image was accompanied through the LCD (liquid crystal display) visor, and the picture was taken with the flash button on and with no macro resource. the image was then enlarged by optical and digital zoom before being easily stored in photo files at the personal computer.Results: the quality of the photos obtained by this method was at least similar to that of traditional photos, and the data were promptly stored.Conclusions: We describe a simple method of taking pictures from endoscopic images with the additional advantage of a facility to edit and store the photographs.
