In virtual colonoscopy, an up-to-date high-tech procedure scans the entire abdomen optically, and thereby non-intrusively. For this we use a modern CT scanner which produces razor-sharp images and evaluates them reliably with the aid of special software. In this way it is no longer necessary as a rule for you to have a colonoscopy. This is only necessary if abnormalities are found and can be carried out on the same day without repeated colon cleansing.
- No anaesthetic is required – you can leave the practice immediately after the examination
- A stressful intervention is not necessary
- Low radiation exposure (low dose technology)
- The examination itself only takes a few minutes
- If a contrast agent is administered, the entire abdomen can also be assessed
A colonoscopy is not pleasant. For screening, you can arrange a virtual colonography, in which an up-to-date high-tech procedure scans the entire abdomen optically.
