    Radiation Exposure
    When you get a virtual colonoscopy, your doctor does a CT scan of your abdomen and pelvis to create 3-D images that show polyps and other abnormalities inside your colon and rectum.
    This video shows a virtual colonoscopy of the rectosigmoid colon performed in a retrograde fashion.
    While computed tomography colonography can identify large polyps, it will not be covered under Medicare, partly because of questions about its efficacy in an older population.
