Massachusetts Hospital Utilizes New Method for Detecting Colorectal Cancer

Quincy (Mass.) Medical Center has been tapped to conduct a new clinical trial that would assess the efficacy of a GI device aimed at detecting more abnormalities during colonoscopy, according to a Boston Globe news report.

The Third Eye device enables GI physicians to view a 360-degree image of patients' colons, which reduces the risk of missing colorectal polyps. The device, which is FDA approved, is contained within a traditional colonoscopy but allows physicians to view up to 25 percent more colon abnormalities than a routine colonoscopy, according to the news report.
