University of Arizona researchers making dual-view endoscope: 3 key notes

Tucson-based University of Arizona gastroenterologist Bhaskar Banerjee, MD, and colleagues are creating a dual-view endoscope to improve physician vision during colonoscopy, Arizona Public Media reports.

Here's what you should know.

1. The camera allows the user to see both forward and backwards simultaneously.

2. Dr. Banerjee said initial tests of the device increased the number of simulated polyps observed compared to a standard colonoscope.

3. Dr. Banerjee believes the device could be approved in three to four years. He hopes its approval will lengthen the amount of time patients can wait between colonoscopies.
