Clinical Study: Colonoscopy

Studies List

A colonoscopy is a routine medical procedure that provides an unobstructed view of the colon. Colonoscopies are usually performed as an outpatient procedure by a gastroenterologist in order to view the entire lining of the colon and rectum.


A colonoscopy is generally recommended if there are bowel habits change, blood in stool, persistent abdominal pain, or the patient is aged 50 years or older. Colonoscopies are one of the best tools healthcare professionals have to detect colon cancer as well as diagnose other gastrointestinal issues.
