Under the terms of a new agreement Pentax Medical plans to commercialize its G-Eye endoscope in Europe, the Middle-East and Africa.
The endoscope utilizes Smart’s G-Eye balloon and the HD+ PENTAX Medical colonoscope in order to “centralize the image in the colon lumen and flattens colon folds, thereby providing enhanced visualization of the colon and enabling an increase in polyp detection,” according to a press release.
“Our alliance with PENTAX Medical provides us with a great opportunity to serve the European medical community, enabling better treatment for patients and enhancing physicians’ capabilities during the colonoscopy procedure," Smart CEO’s Gadi Terliuc said in prepared remarks. "The G-Eye colonoscope provides optimal visualization and exceptional detection capabilities. Clinical studies show additional adenoma detection yield of over 80%, almost doubled in comparison to standard colonoscopy."
