Virtual Colonoscopy Services in Southern California
A much less invasive alternative to colonoscopy, virtual colonoscopy is a CT scan of the colon and pelvic region for polyps and early cancer before symptoms occur. It is a popular alternative to the traditional test for patients who have avoided their colon cancer screening.
One of the benefits of virtual colonoscopy is that it does not require sedation, so you are able to drive yourself to and from your appointment. In addition, virtual colonoscopy can see areas of the colon that are not easy for the colon scope to reach, as well as the surrounding organs.
This test may be covered by insurance, depending on your provider. The cash price for this test is $600.
