    Virtual Colonoscopy: What You Need to Know

    Mar 16 2018

    Most colorectal cancers begin as small harmless polyps that can be detected by a colonoscopy.

    Unlike a traditional colonoscopy, a virtual colonoscopy doesn’t involve a scope or require sedation, and allows you to return to your daily activities immediately afterwards.Candidates for a virtual colonoscopy include those who:

    Have had an incomplete colonoscopy

    Cannot tolerate a colonoscopy

    Want to avoid sedation

    Ask your primary care physician if you’re a candidate for a virtual colonoscopy.

    To schedule your exam call 314-747-9647.
