The company’s lead product is an endoscopy capsule that a patient eats before a colon imaging system for colorectal cancer and clinically-significant pre-cancerous polyps is performed. It utilizes proprietary, low radiation, X-ray-based measurement technology to safely generate high-resolution, 3-dimensional imagery of the colon without cleansing or other aggressive bowel preparation. This solution is designed to increase compliance with screening recommendations. The Check-Cap imaging system is not cleared for marketing in any jurisdiction.
