Virtual Colonoscopy Directory

A virtual colonoscopy is a colonoscopy that uses imaging to create 3D images of the large intestines and rectum and is used to screen for cancers, tumors, or polyps. Virtual colonoscopies are effective in diagnosing colorectal problems including cancer, finding sources of internal bleeding, detecting reasons for chronic diarrhea, and more. Before a virtual colonoscopy, you will undergo a cleansing prep 1-2 days ahead of time.
