Q

How is virtual colonoscopy performed?

Is it done the same as normal colonoscopy?

Healthcare Providers (2)

A virtual colonoscopy uses imaging by CT to create a 3 dimensional view of the colon. It is not done the same as a colonoscopy.

Virtual colonscopy is a CT scan of your colon. You drink the same colon preparation, but no sedation is given.
