Virtual colonoscopy

The medical community seems to agree that "virtual colonoscopy" is now the way to go over the traditional sedate you and stick a scope up your ass method. That's welcome relief to me. Of course, the lingering issue will be insurance coverage, but the fact that it costs half as much should be enough you'd think.

I've had a whole lot of intestinal trauma in my life, and frankly my shitty diet isn't making that better. While I do eat more fiber now that I ever have, I still need to do better. Add to that some family history on both sides for colon polyps and cancer, and it's something I need to watch for.

It's kind of neat because we're getting more and more like Star Trek medicine. "My God man, you can't cure him by drilling holes in his head!" :)
