EndoChoice announced the results of a comparison study between its Full Spectrum Endoscopy System and traditional forward-viewing colonoscopes.

The multicenter international study examined 185 patients who had same-day, back-to-back tandem colonoscopies. The study found:

•    Standard colonoscopes missed 41 percent of adenomas.
•    FUSE endoscopy system detected 69 percent more adenomas than standard colonoscopes.

The Fuse endoscopy system provides an expanded field of view, 330 degrees for a colonoscope compared to the 170 degree field of view in a traditional colonoscope.
