Yes, hurray for the bio-mechanical engineers!  No doubt that tailored drugs are essential cancer treatment but prevention is key, too.  As a guy who is approaching the age for my first colonscopy its nice to see that this device can help standardize repeatability in a common medical procedure.

I agree, Beth. I would imagine we'll see considerably more of these types of advancements in the coming years and decades. There is certainly a large demand for these advances, and our health care structure allows for cost to not be much of a factor. With the profound need and no competitive factors to keep prices low, the medical device market is wide open.

When you hear about breakthroughs in the fight against common medical conditions like breast cancer or prostate cancer, it always seems in light of some new pharmaceutical, surgery, or treatment technique. It's nice to see how far we've come with enlisting new materials and process technologies in the fight against such common diseases.
