MONTVALE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Everyone knows screening endoscopy is today’s current standard of practice for detecting pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions of the colon.

PENTAX Medical's emerging Confocal Endomicroscopy technology, however, is showing great promise in possibly one day erasing some of that difficulty.
