Virtual Colonoscopy

What is Virtual Colonoscopy ?

It is a technique for non-invasive examination of the colon. Unlike conventional colonoscopy which involves the insertion of an endoscope into the colon of the patient, in VC, the colon is inflated with carbon dioxide introduced into the rectum via a soft, small rubber catheter. An EBCT scanner then acquires the image of the colon and a high performance computer software programme generates a virtual fly-through 3-dimensional image of the colon, a similar view seen in conventional endoscopy.

 

What is the role of Virtual Colonoscopy ?

It is a non-invasive screening procedure for colon cancer.
