What will I experience during and after the procedure?

The vast majority of patients who have a Virtual Colonoscopy exam report a feeling of fullness when the colon is inflated during the exam, as if they need to pass gas. Significant pain is uncommon. After the tube is inserted, your privacy will be respected. The scanning procedure itself causes no pain or other symptoms.

When you enter the CT scanner, special lights may be used to ensure that you are properly positioned. You will hear only slight buzzing, clicking and whirring sounds as the CT scanner revolves around you during the imaging process.

You will be alone in the exam room during the CT scan; however, our Technologist will be able to see, hear and speak with you at all times. After a CT exam, you can return to your normal activities.
