Why Automated Virtual Colonoscopy?

Some Clinical and Logistical Aspects: A brief explanation of the reason why gentle Colon Software was developed.

The original medical procedure by which to visualize the colonic mucosa was based on a diagnostic or preventive care examination. Before virtual colonoscopy was introduced, the typical colon examination was the barium double contrast. At present, however, recent literature leaves no doubt that Virtual Colonoscopy delivers more accurate results by far. Regarding the range of preventive care options, the most relevant issues are those concerning the logistical problems of alternative colon examinations. 


Colon cancer is one of the most frequent killers of the cancer diseases, even though most deaths could be prevented. There is no other cancer that may be as easily avoided as colon cancer. Logistics are the root problem of every type of preventive care examination. This means that there are simply too many examinations required by the standard method - in contrast with methods such as optical colonoscopy.

One may calculate the number of optical colonoscopy working places in every country. This enables an estimation of the possible optical colonoscopy examinations in total per year. The total number of optical examinations will only cover 4 to 8% of the population over the age of 50. This means more than 90% are unable to participate in preventive care examinations by means of optical colonoscopy.

It should be taken into consideration that out of 10 optical colonoscopies, only 2 to 3 examinations will display any relevant findings, with 7 to 8 patients out of 10 showing no findings whatsoever. These patients will block the highly valuable intervention working places. The result being that, at present, optical colonoscopy is working in a highly inefficient manner.

Optical colonoscopy, with the possible option of intervention, is therefore too valuable to apply to only optical inspections of the colonic mucosa. A pre-diagnosis tool is necessary to increase the intervention rate of optical colonoscopy. EVERY OPTICAL COLONOSCOPY SHOULD BE AN INTERVENTIONAL THERAPY

This means that virtual colonoscopy should in fact be able to handle quite a high number of examinations per day in an already busy organization. In order to accomodate an increased number of additional examinations in a daily clinical routine, a specific tool is needed: an available tool that is extremely fast and accurate, as well as both feasible and communicative.

Within a daily clinical routine, Virtual Colonoscopy Procedures should be integrated easily into clinical work. Crucial aspects are path finding issues (incomplete path findings), as well as easy handling of the software combined with high accuracy, complete visualization of the cross-sectional information, and the ability to share the findings with your clinical partners - these are all relevant and important issues in particular. Virtual Colonoscopy should be as easy to handle as 2D imaging: This is the reason why physicians worldwide are using Rendoscopy (see Testimonials), in locations such as Boston, San Francisco, New York, Stockholm Karolinska, Stockholm Danderyd, Stockholm Ersta, St. Göran, Bergen, London, Roeselare, Rome, Paris, as well as a number of other larger and smaller imaging centers: Read the reason for their decision in the following link!
