Disease or Condition   Colon Polyps
Title   Impact of Experience with the Third Eye Retroscope on Detection Rates and Withdrawal Times during a Colonoscopy (colon polyps)
Description   Patients who are scheduled for a colonoscopy will be recruited to the study and examined with the Third Eye Retroscope in conjunction with a standard colonoscope. The Third Eye Retroscope may allow the study doctor to visualize parts of the colon that otherwise could not be seen. For each polyp that is found, the endoscopist will indicate whether it could be seen with the colonoscope, or if it could be found with the colonoscope only because it was first detected with the Third Eye. The primary outcome measures will be the detection rates for adenomas and for all polyps. Secondary outcome measures will be time spent during the withdrawal phase and total procedure time.
