Advanced Screening for Colon Cancer 

First in North Dallas

A new screening tool called the Third Eye Retroscope allows physicians to have a more complete view during colonoscopy exams and better identify abnormalities in the colon. 

The Third Eye Retroscope operates as a "rear view mirror" to visualize potentially dangerous polyps hidden in the folds of the colon.

Recent studies show that the Third Eye Retroscope, when used in combination with standard colonoscopy devices, increased polyp detection by 13 percent.
