Avantis Medical Systems | Third Eye Panoramic Though Avantis showed off its single-use Third Eye Panoramic device at last year's DDW, this year's brand-new generation is much more affordable and practical than its predecessor. Earning 510(k) clear- ance from the FDA just a few days before the show, the Third Eye Panoramic is a small, reusable device that can attach to virtually any colonoscope to give doctors a 330° view of the colon. The device features 2 cameras on its side that help clinicians see behind the folds of the colon, where polyps tend to hide. In fact, in some studies the Third Eye Panoramic has been shown to help physi- cians find up to 25% more pre-cancerous adenomas than a standard colonoscope alone. The reusable option can be used in up to 100 cases and is simply tossed in the top rack of your automated endo- scope reprocessor for cleaning and disinfection after use. It's a great option for those who want wide views during their colonoscopies with- out the capital investment of a fancy new imaging system. 5 2 • O U T PA T I E N T S U R G E R Y M A G A Z I N E • J U L Y 2 0 1 6
