Preparing for a colonoscopy

A colonoscopy is a test that lets the doctor view the inside of your lower digestive tract. It can help screen for colon cancers and can also help find the source of abdominal pain, bleeding or changes in bowel habits. A good colonoscopy preparation can help doctors see small polyps and the colonoscopy procedure takes less time with lower risks of complications. The following brochures will help you properly prepare for your colonoscopy procedure.
