The provider examines the colon and rectum using a colonoscope, a flexible tube with a camera at its inserted end. If he sees any areas of abnormal mucosa or tissue, he takes samples using a brush passed through the scope or irrigates the area with warm saline and aspirates the washings through the scope. He sends the specimens to the laboratory for diagnostic analysis.
