C-Scan

Redefining colorectal cancer screening and prevention

The first and only patient-friendly preparation-free test to detect polyps before they may transform into cancer

The C-Scan System is not approved in the United States and is currently an investigational device there. The system is approved in the E.U. and Israel but it is not available for sale in any jurisdiction. This website is not intended to provide medical advice for patients or healthcare providers.

~10 Year
Prevention Opportunity

In many cases colorectal cancer can be prevented – why wait?

The C-Scan system can detect precancerous polyps, the precursors of colorectal cancer.

~25% of the asymptomatic average-risk screening population presents benign polyps in the colon, with the potential to turn into cancer over time.

It can take up to 10 years before a polyp develops into invasive cancer.
