Colonoscopy enables visual inspection of the entire large bowel from the distal rectum to the cecum .The procedure is a safe and effective means of evaluating the large bowel. The technology for colonoscopy has evolved to provide a very clear image of the mucosa through a video camera attached to the end of the scope. The camera connects to a computer, which can store and print color images selected during the procedure....kindly go according to doctors advice it's for your goodness
