Better biopsy

Posted:

When doctors find a suspicious tumor or growth, waiting for test results can be torture.

But now a new type of imaging is giving patients instant answers.

It's called Cellvizio.

It's a flexible microscope inserted into the body during routine procedures, like colonoscopies.

The scope can magnify tissues up to one-thousand times, allowing doctors to instantly detect whether there are any cancerous or pre-cancerous cells.
