Alternatives to Colonoscopy
Other tests can help a doctor detect diseases of the colon. Sometimes these tests can be done instead of a colonoscopy, but at other times they are performed in addition to a colonoscopy because each test can provide different types of information.
Your doctor will decide which of these tests is most appropriate for you.
