Read the full article: FDA orders manufacturers to study cleaning problems with medical scopes linked to infections - The Washington Post:

"The agency ordered a trio of manufacturers to conduct real-world evaluations on how well health care workers are cleaning and disinfecting the devices and what more might be done to prevent the spread of life-threatening infections.

Known as duodenoscopes, the devices are used in hundreds of thousands of procedures each year in the United States to drain fluids from pancreatic and bile ducts blocked by cancer tumors, gallstones and other conditions. Doctors consider them a key tool in detecting and treating medical problems in a minimally invasive way."
