Fluoroscopy Testing


A test that lets the doctor see inside your colon with an instrument called a colonoscope, which is a long flexible tube about the width of your index finger. The scope projects a picture onto a monitor screen so the lining of the colon can be evaluated.

This test requires you to follow instructions for a diet or cleansing preparation prior to having the test performed.
