New ‘SpyGlass’ Fiber Optic Technology Makes Hard-to-Detect GI Problems Easier to Diagnose
Tuesday, June 21, 2011
Each year, almost half a million Americans undergo a procedure called ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography), which is performed to diagnose cancer, stones, and other disorders of the liver, gallbladder and bile ducts. Conventional ERCPs may be inconclusive, and additional tests or even surgery may be necessary to determine the nature of a patient’s problem. Local gastroenterologists are now turning to the new SpyGlass™ Direct Visualization System in many cases because it addresses the limitations of conventional ERCPs.
