New virtual colonoscopy screening likely to save lives
LONG ISLAND, N.Y. - Doctors across the U.S. are reaching the same conclusion when asked about new virtual colonoscopy technology. "It helps to save lives," says Kevin A. Kreeger, Ph.D. and director research and development for Viatronix, a, FDA-approved 3-D virtual colonoscopy system developer.
Dr. C. Michael Wright, a cardiologist at The LifeScore Clinic in San Diego agrees, "People are risking their lives just to avoid the traditional procedure. Viatronix virtual colonoscopy provides a proven, accurate and more palatable alternative to standard colon exams." "A lot of time and effort has been poured into awareness and public service campaigns with the best of intentions, but you can't change the fact that the traditional procedure is unpleasant, uncomfortable and people can't immediately return to normal activities," Wright said.
