New medical system for colon cancer screening
Funding from the Office of Naval Research has helped develop a Virtual Colonoscopy procedure that is an accurate, cost-effective, fast, non-invasive, and patient-comfortable procedure for screening of colon polyps, the precursor of cancer. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer related death in America, but the negative perception of the current screening method and the reluctance of the general public to get screened has been a problem.
