This article talks about a new way to check for colon cancer. The new invention is Virtual Colonoscopy. Yet compared to old standards of checking for Colon Cancer, it has not been as accurate. In a study that was performed the virtual colonoscopy detected 55% of patients. The traditional version is 100% accurate. This procedure was done on tumors 10 millimeters in diameter. Another test preformed was on tumors that were smaller then 6 millimeters. The results of the virtual colonoscopy were way off. Only 36 percent were detected. From the study eight patients had a cancer, yet the virtual colonoscopy failed to detect two of the patients. As you can see there is a high risk of not being fully detected with the virtual colonoscopy.
