A New Vision for Colorectal Cancer Prevention
Check-Cap is a clinical-stage medical diagnostics company developing
C-Scan®, the first capsule-based system for preparation-free, colorectal cancer screening.
Utilizing innovative ultra-low dose X-ray and wireless communication technologies, our capsule generates information on the contours of the inside of the colon as it passes naturally. This information is used to create a 3D map of the colon, which allows physicians to look for polyps and other abnormalities. Designed to improve the patient experience and increase the willingness of individuals to participate in recommended colorectal cancer screening, C-Scan® removes many frequently-cited barriers, such as laxative bowel preparation, invasiveness and sedation.
Unlike existing tests that require a clean and distended bowel, C-Scan is a breakthrough technology that works in concert with the natural state of the bowel to detect structural abnormalities that may be precancerous or cancerous polyps.
