TOKYO -- Olympus will broaden its medical devices business to include disposable products and computer-assisted services as the Japanese company looks to expand after years of restructuring.

In an update to a three-year business plan through March 2023, the Tokyo-based company said that it will add disposable products to its lineup of endoscopic tools, which are used to detect cancers early and treat them without invasive operations.
