MetadataShow full item record
As the scope follows the contours of the large intestine, the student must negotiate the sigmoid colon, splenic flexure, and hepatic flexure before viewing the internal structure of the ascending colon and cecum. As the flexible sigmoidoscope is withdrawn, the student can identify benign sessile, pedunculated and hyperplastic polyps, as well as cancerous lesions. There are a total of 12 pathological conditions to diagnose. All manipulative and photographic techniques can also be practiced.
