Virtual Colonoscopy is a breakthrough technology for the early detection of colon cancer that is more comfortable, convenient, less expensive and safer than traditional invasive colonoscopy, with similar sensitivities. And better yet, it does not require the passage of a 5 to 6 foot long tube (scope) through the colon, anesthesia and intravenous lines. The entire screening takes only 20-30 minutes and you can return to your normal activities immediately.

Cancer of the colon and/or rectum (colorectal cancer) is the third most common cancer diagnosed in America. Because of improved treatments and early diagnosis, the death rate from colorectal cancer has been going down for the past 20 years.

Before a true cancer develops, there are usually precancerous changes in the lining of the colon or rectum. The most common is the growth of polyps. The goal of screening for colorectal cancer is to find polyps and cancers before they cause symptoms because early detection offers the best opportunity for successful treatment.

Men and women age 50 and older should consider Virtual Colonoscopy in order to protect their health and wellness. Colon cancer is nearly always curable when discovered early. Virtual Colonoscopy can give you the vital health information necessary to save your life from colon cancer. You don’t need to avoid your colon cancer screenings any longer.
