A virtual colonoscopy detects any lesions or polyps in the lower part of the large intestine. By using advanced computerized tomography scanners, images of the inner linings of the intestine can be generated. Our certified radiologists analyze the images and detect any anomalies early.
For a colonoscopy scan, a clear and clean bowel is crucial for better results. A prep kit contains some laxative pills that would help in clearing out your bowel.
Always wear loose clothes while going for a colonoscopy scan and put on a hospital gown. Avoid wearing any metallic accessories.
Follow the colonoscopy scan preparation instructions. You can keep yourself hydrated if required. Try not to eat after midnight on the day of your scan. Do not eat solids that may metabolize slowly as your bowel needs to be clear before the scan.
You must consult your doctor first in case you are pregnant. Even though we are using low doses of radiation that may harm the developing fetus.
Consult your physician, and prepare your body for a colonoscopy scan. Eat and drink as per instructions. Try not to eat solid food and stop eating at least 6-8 hours before the scan.
