Preventative Screening: Virtual Colonoscopy

Are you a candidate for preventative screening? Complete a brief survey to find out!

What Is Virtual Colonoscopy?

Virtual colonoscopy is a minimally invasive exam to screen for cancer of the large intestine. Unlike traditional colonoscopy, which requires a scope to be inserted into your rectum and advanced through your colon, virtual colonoscopy uses a CT scan to produce hundreds of cross-sectional images of your abdominal organs. The images are combined and digitally manipulated to provide a detailed view of the inside of the colon and rectum.

Who Is a Candidate?

  • Men and women 50 years of age or older at average risk of colon cancer

  • Anyone reluctant to have colonoscopy

  • Men and women at risk of colonoscopy complications, such as excess bleeding because your blood does not clot normally
