Preparing for Your Virtual Colonoscopy
The day before your Virtual Colonoscopy you will be required to properly cleanse your bowels. We are currently recommending that patients purchase the Fleet Prep Kit #1 and follow the instructions for the 24-hour prep. This may be purchased over the counter at your local pharmacy. Please note that some pharmacies may require one day's notice to order the kit.
Prior to your scan, a small enema tip (about the size of a pen) is inserted into your rectum. The technologist will fill your colon with air which is necessary in order to visualize your bowels. The only discomfort may be a feeling of fullness due to the air. The colonoscopy itself takes only about ten minutes.
A Virtual Colonoscopy is contraindicated in patients with rectal bleeding, history of diverticulitis, Crohn's Disease, or those who have a recent colonoscopy with positive findings.
