How do doctors rate the Ambu single-use bronchoscope?

A recent study1 showed a preference among physicians for the Ambu aScope 4 Broncho single-use bronchoscope and Ambu® aView™ monitor over standard reusable bronchoscopes they have used. 

The preference may have been due to the quality of the imaging and the ability to bend up and down 180°.
