Home-Delivered CCE superior to standard colonoscopy

When you compare a standard colonoscopy with CorporateHealth’ home-delivered colon capsule endoscopy, the results speak for themselves: “In participants with complete colon capsule endoscopy and colonoscopy examinations (N=126), per-patient sensitivity of >9 mm polyps in colon capsule endoscopy (97%; 95% CI: 94-100) was superior to colonoscopy (89%; 95% CI: 84-94).”

Same prep CHI-CCE and Colonoscopy

Khoury et al. find that is it feasible to create a tandem offering, where a colonoscopy could be conducted right after a capsule endoscopy. That way for over 80% of patients that would have required a follow-up, invasive procedure, a second prep might have been avoided.
