Adoption is expected to continue over the forecast period, but unit sales will continue exhibiting negative growth, due to the long lifespan of virtual colonoscopy software. One positive factor that might help counter unit erosion is the relative affordability of colonography against optical colonoscopy. Given the growing costs of colonoscopy screening in the United States, the market might turn its attention back to colonography.
Virtual colonoscopy is a procedure used for screening the large intestine for any polyps (abnormal growths), colorectal cancer, and other diseases or defects. Unlike a regular colonoscopy, this procedure is non-invasive. Before the examination begins, a tube is inserted into the rectum to inflate the colon with air. This makes the colon larger and the surface area less convoluted, allowing for a clearer and more thorough examination. A laxative and a tagging agent are ingested by the patient prior to the procedure in order to reduce the amount of fecal matter in the colon and make the remainder easily distinguishable. Virtual colonoscopy does not require the use of a sedative, thus eliminating side-effect risks as well as allowing patients to return to their normal activities immediately following the procedure.
