Dear Inquirer! There is no long waiting time in our private clinic, you can book an appointment for a CT scan even today! Don’t wait for your condition to get worse, give us a call now!

CT colonoscopy is a special imaging procedure with stool marking. The test is also accepted as a screening test for polyps and cancerous lesions in the intestine.

After bowel cleansing, the air-inflated colon is examined similarly to an abdominal CT scan, and three-dimensional images and “virtual” images of the intestinal surface similar to those seen during colon mirroring are obtained from the data using a computer and a special program.


Purpose of the virtual colonoscopy examination

CT colonoscopy examines the inner surface of the colon to find patterns that protrude into the intestinal cavity, called polyps, or possibly larger intestinal wall thickenings that narrow the intestinal tract.

The procedure is less stressful than colonoscopy, but it also needs the colon to be filled with air which can be uncomfortable.

The examination also provides an opportunity to review the abdominal areas (surrounding abdominal adipose tissue, lymph nodes, other abdominal organs) in addition to the intestines in the resulting images.


How the scan works

Colonoscopy uses X-rays to expose you to radiation and should only be used during pregnancy if clearly necessary.

We evaluate the taken records with a special computer-based 3D picture processing technology - it enables us to view the inner surface of the colon like during colonoscopy.


Benefits and risks

The procedure is less onerous than colon mirroring. The examination also provides an opportunity to examine the abdominal areas in addition to the intestine, such as the surrounding abdominal adipose tissue, lymph nodes, and other abdominal organs.

However, it is not possible to take samples during the examination or to remove any polyps seen. Very rarely during the examination, the supply air can cause damage or perforation of the weakened intestinal wall.

This complication is very rare, occurring in less than 1 in 2,000 patients, but is significantly less common than direct colon mirroring.


CT colonoscopy preparation

Testing is well tolerated, no intoxication required. Proper bowel cleansing to make the inner surface of the bowel visible is very important for the success of the test.

Before intestinal cleansing, the intestinal contents are marked with a contrast agent to separate any residual contamination from polyps and other tissue formulas.

To do this, the Patient should consume one teaspoon of contrast material dissolved in water with each meal 2 days before the test.

In case of CT examination, above 150 kg body weight, please consult your treating physician.
