In brief: Yes

Colonoscopy is the standard method for detecting lesions of the bowel before symptoms develop.
Today, forward viewing endoscopes with a 150-170 degree field of view are most common; however, the Fuse technology expands this field of view to 330 degree. A clinical study found that the standard forward-viewing colonoscopes missed 41% of the pre-cancerous lesions and polyps while Fuse missed 7%
