granted 510(k) clearance to the EndoChoice Fuse Gastroscope.
Traditional gastroscopes provide endoscopists with about a 140-degree visual field. The Fuse Gastroscope gives endoscopists about 245 degrees and has thin, flexible tubes to view both lower and upper GI tracts.
The device has two cameras and the Fuse Colonoscope has three cameras. Fuse systems give physicians the view of nearly twice as much surface area.
