In the setting of the contiguous reprocessing anteroom, individuals assigned to scope reprocessing can be given visual clues as to when a scope is in need of reprocessing; prompting their proactive retrieval of the soiled instruments. In the alternative scenarios, the endoscope is precleaned locally, but may not be transported for reprocessing until numerous other tasks related to the patient, specimens, or medications are completed.

A systematic review was conducted involving five randomized controlled studies comparing topical anesthesia to placebo or no treatment. The primary endpoints of the study were to evaluate the effectiveness of topical anesthetic agents in improving patient tolerance and procedural ease during sedated upper endoscopy [11]. 12). 17).

Both remain to be seen at this time. Wireless colon capsule devices for cancer and polyp screening are currently under development. Colon screening technologies Colon screening technologies (CT colonography or virtual colonoscopy, stool gene testing, and wireless capsule endoscopes), may significantly erode current screening volumes, while adding lesser numbers of planned therapeutic procedures based on their identification of polyps or other uncertain findings.
