Does the Aer-O-Scope procedure require any special patient preparation?

No. Patient preparation for the Aer-O-Scope colonoscope screening procedure is identical to the preparation for conventional colonoscopy screening.

Is the Aer-O-Scope procedure performed using sedation?

Yes. Patients undergoing screening colonoscopy with the Aer-O-Scope colonoscope are administered the same sedation as with conventional colonoscopy.

Does the Aer-O-Scope scanner use optical imaging?

Yes. The imaging itself is quite similar to conventional colonoscopy that uses optical imaging. However the Aer-O-Scope optical imaging head was designed from scratch to suit imaging of the human colon and not adapted from other optical imaging technologies. The 360° omni-view enables easy visualization of polyps behind anatomic folds.

How does the Aer-O-Scope colonoscope procedure compare with emerging new technologies, such as the Given Imaging PillCam COLON and Virtual Colonoscopy?

Both the PillCam COLON and Virtual Colonoscopy do not support basic functionalities, such as water cleansing, suction and insufflation burst. These functionalities enable better visualization of the colon in many cases. In addition, if polyps are discovered using either of these techniques and need to be removed, an additional preparation and sedation for a polypectomy are required. Virtual Colonoscopy records only polyps larger than 6mm. Also, PillCam COLON screening offers no vehicle to control PillCam movement within the colon. The Aer-O-Scope is designed to provide robust navigational control on the optical imaging head.
