Colorectal Cancer Screening

Colorectal Cancer Screening

Colorectal Cancer, cancer of the colon and/or rectum, is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States.1 Colorectal cancer almost always develops from precancerous polyps (abnormal growths) in the colon or rectum. Screening tests can find precancerous polyps, so that they can be removed before they turn into cancer. Screening tests can also find colorectal cancer early, when treatment works best.

Windsong’s Virtual CT Colonoscopy
CT Colonoscopy (CTC) is one of several screening choices to detect colorectal cancer that requires the same preparation as a conventional colonoscopy. The benefits include:

  • No sedation
  • Low dose of radiation
  • Can detect other concerns in your abdomen including your colon
