So THIS is what Obamacare looks like. First of all, a CT Scan CANNOT detect Colon Cancer, if anything IS detected in a CT Scan they send you immediately for a colonoscopy anyway so a colonoscopy is the best bet to find anything. As far as not having to take laxatives, you have to otherwise they won’t be able to see anything and they will send you home, trust me, from experience I know the drill

Actually, several companies—including GE, who is a major manufacturer of body-scanning machines used in medicine—are working on highly-advanced scanners that may completely eliminate the need for any invasive procedures to check for colonrectal, prostate and cervical cancers. And they’re almost there, too.
