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.
