17 Presentations Highlighting the Clinical Value of Cellvizio® in Gastrointestinal Diseases at the Digestive Disease Week® 2019

17 accepted abstracts demonstrate growing clinical recognition of Cellvizio® as a necessary tool for real-time endomicroscopy imaging in multiple gastrointestinal indications 

Mauna Kea Technologies today announced the presentation of 17 abstracts supporting Cellvizio® at the Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) Conference, being held on May 18-21, 2019, at the San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA, USA. These abstracts focus on Barrett’s esophagus, inflammatory bowel disease, food allergy, pancreatic cyst and other gastrointestinal diseases. Studies are focused on how the use of Cellvizio® potentially impacts patient management and improved outcomes. 

“Real-time in vivo confocal laser endomicroscopy with Cellvizio is once again taking center stage at the Digestive Disease Week® as evidenced by the many high-quality studies presented this year,” said Robert L. Gershon, Chief Executive Officer of Mauna Kea Technologies. “We are excited to see the large number of studies being presented and discussed that demonstrate the potential significant impact of Cellvizio on patient management. It also shows that Cellvizio is a key driver for improved outcomes and reduced healthcare costs in multiple applications such as pancreatic lesions and inflammatory bowel disease, two widely prevalent conditions in great need for advanced technology to help diagnosis and treatment.”
