The agreement allows Mauna Kea to help the ASGE reach its goal to advance patient care and digestive health by promoting excellence and innovation in endoscopy.

ASGE president Gregory Ginsberg said support from Mauna Kea Technologies helps them expand the understanding and practical application of medical innovations that improve their ability to diagnose and treat patients.

Mauna Kea Technologies founder and CEO Sacha Loiseau said Mauna Kea Technologies is dedicated to work closely with ASGE to support education, training and adoption of innovative technologies including Cellvizio.

"We also applaud the ASGE’s efforts to offer gastroenterologists access to training with the latest technologies that have the potential to change the way GI disease is detected and treated," Loiseau said.
