What Is a Colonoscopy?

The procedure involves a flexible tube (colonoscope) inserted through the rectum so it can view the inside of the large bowel (colon). This tube transmits images to a screen where signs of a medical condition can be seen.

The colonoscope is about half the thickness of an electrical cord, with a camera and light, for viewing the bowel up-close and in detail. It is flexible and can be turned around curves, allowing it to travel through the entire length of the colon.
