Screening Virtual Colonoscopy — Ready for Prime Time?

By February 10, 2008No Comments

The New England Journal of Medicine editorial in December, 2003 concluded that this X-ray study of the colon was equivalently effective to optical colonoscopy for screening for colon polyps. Dr. Kanner is supportive of this alternative for most patients undergoing initial colon screening. The facilities we refer to (Be Well at Beth Israel or Mass General West) are highly experienced in performing this test. See virtual-colonoscopy-editorial-2003.pdf
