WESTBURY, New YorkE-Z-Em, Inc. has begun marketing its InnerviewGI
workstation for virtual colonoscopy procedures. The product is able to render
three-dimensional (3D) images in just seconds and provides imaging
professionals with multiple 3D view options (see figures below), as well as
synchronized 2D and 3D views of the colon, the company said in a news release.
InnerviewGI is powered by Vital Images’ Vitrea 2 software and features
real-time navigation of 3D volume data.
E-Z-Em also recently introduced PROTOCOL2L, its new colon insufflation
system for virtual colonoscopy imaging procedures. The system consists of an
automated insufflation device and disposable administration sets. The product
uses carbon dioxide instead of room air to distend the colon for accurate
imaging diagnosis and patient comfort. As an automated system, gas pressure is
regulated and constant, minimizing the pressure spikes that can occur during
manual insufflation, the company said.
