"For many patients, the most difficult and unpleasant part of undergoing a colonoscopy is the preparation required with traditional colonoscopes," said Guy Neev, CEO, Check-Cap Ltd. "We believe that as the first high-resolution screening modality for colorectal cancer that requires no bowel cleansing or other aggressive preparation, the Check-Cap imaging system has the potential to improve patient compliance to colon cancer screening guidelines.  This is the first clinical data presentation in support of this new modality and a significant milestone for the company."
