Smart Medical System's G-Eye balloon technology was found to increase the detection of colon adenomas when compared to Endocuff Vision-assisted technology, according to a study released Oct. 25. 

The study included 935 patients randomized to either G-Eye or Endocuff-assisted colonoscopy. The study found that adenoma detection rates increased 18 percent overall and 65 percent for advanced adenomas for G-Eye over Endocuff-assisted colonoscopy. 

Seth Gross, MD, clinical chief of NYU Langone Health's division of gastroenterology and hepatology and co-author of the study, presented the data at the American College of Gastroenterology 2021 conference, being held Oct. 22-27.
