ABSTRACT
In the past few years, several groups of investigators have developed colonoscopic instruments or accessories to speed up the examination and make it more tolerable for patients. The NeoGuide Endoscopy System has the computer processing ability to direct each 8-cm segment of its colonoscope to bend at the exact place where the leading segment turned around a corner. This follow-the-leader system is intended to reduce loops and ensure comfort through preventing excess pressure on the colon wall by making a turn without the usual maneuver of pushing on the wall to advance the scope.
