Q

Is preparation different between colonoscopy and virtual colonoscopy?

What is the difference between colonoscopy and virtual colonoscopy? I heard there were tablets to take the night before, as opposed to drinking glasses of liquid.

The bowel prep for both colonoscopy and virtual colonoscopy tests are the same.

The facility that will perform the virtual colonoscopy will need to direct you on how to prep as each facility may be different. There is usually a cleansing prep needed.
