Diagnostic LGI scopy
A colonoscopy is an exam used to detect changes or abnormalities in the large intestine (colon) and rectum.
During a colonoscopy, a long, flexible tube (colonoscope) is inserted into the rectum. A tiny video camera at the tip of the tube allows the doctor to view the inside of the entire colon.
If necessary, polyps or other types of abnormal tissue can be removed through the scope during a colonoscopy. Tissue samples (biopsies) can be taken during a colonoscopy as well.
During procedure the endoscopist takes enough precautions to make colonoscopy smooth and comfortable. Doing colonoscopy under sense (no sedition) gives you freedom to resume duty the same day and normal diet immediate after procedure.
