Splenic Flexure

If the scope "turns the corner," and goes past the splenic flexure, it's a colonoscopy.

If the provider is one of those that documents using centimeters, then...
7cm – 26cm would be a proctosigmoidoscopy
26cm - 60cm Sigmoidoscopy
Greater than 60cm Colonoscopy.
Hope this is helpful!!!
