Hamilton Medical Center is one of the first facilities in the nation to use Full Spectrum EndoChoice Fuse® for increased visualization of the colon.
Colonoscopy exams prevent many colon cancer deaths, but the procedure is not completely effective in preventing cancer cases. For this reason, Hamilton Medical Center has invested in an innovative technology that allows doctors to see nearly twice the anatomy seen with a traditional, forward-viewing endoscope. The Fuse endoscope system from EndoChoice®, Inc. uses three small cameras at the tip of a flexible GI endoscope.
The Fuse endoscope system from EndoChoice®, Inc. uses three small cameras at the tip of a flexible GI endoscope. Unlike standard, forward-viewing endoscopes that use a single camera, the Fuse system lets doctors see nearly twice as much surface area.
“The Fuse endoscope is all about seeing more of the GI tract. It projects the expanded view on three screens to give physicians previously unseen views, such as behind colonic folds and difficult anatomy. We are pleased to offer this important new technology to our community.”
-Terri Brown, Director of Medical and Endoscopy Services
