Early colon cancer detection
Colon cancer is significantly on the rise in both women and men in western countries. Early diagnosis is critical in order to make recovery possible.
The virtual colonoscopy, also known as CT colonography, is performed in close cooperation with our registered colleagues, particularly gastroenterologists, and can supplement their exams.
For special cases, the virtual colonoscopy can supplement the gastroscopy or colonoscopy (gastrointestinal exam) performed by the gastroenterologist. Examples include impassibility of a segment of the colon for the endoscope, or explicit refusal of an endoscope. The virtual colonoscopy does not eliminate the need for purgative measures.
