PillScope intends to end the fear, embarrassment, and discomfort of colonoscopies for a future where less patients succumb to colorectal cancer.
For one year, we followed the Stanford Biodesign methodology under the EIT Health Starship Innovation Fellowship, having won the competition final prize at GE Healthcare Headquarters in Budapest, Hungary.

In an average-risk screening cohort, the detection of proximal serrated polyps was highly variable and endoscopist dependent. A significant proportion of proximal serrated polyps may be missed during colonoscopy.
The pooled miss rate for polyps of any size was 22% (95% CI: 19–26%; 370/1,650 polyps).
One-quarter of neoplastic polyps was missed during colonoscopy. We encourage endoscopists to detect smaller and flat or sessile polyps by using the optimal withdrawal technique.
