You’ve heard of high def for your TV? Well, we have it for your Colonoscopy

Physicians of the Digestive Disease Center are completely dedicated to cancer prevention. That’s why it’s no surprise that our adenoma (polyp) detection rate is higher than the national average.The chance of developing colon cancer is directly related to this detection rate.

With the purchase of the most advanced, high-definition, wide angle-view colonoscopes made by Olympus, Hudson Valley Endoscopy Center was the first healthcare facility to bring high definition, narrow band imaging (NBI) to the region and make it available to every single one of its patients. Narrow Band Imaging allows physicians to easily detect flat polyps that are hard to see and commonly go undetected when this technology is unavailable.

With this state-of-the-art equipment and the skilled technique of our physicians, your risk of developing colon cancer is lower.
