Extra Edition: Virtual Colonoscopy (A Program Repeat.)

A growing number of people under age 50 are getting colorectal cancer. Covid-19 delayed cancer screenings for millions and cancer diagnosis for thousands. To facilitate screenings, radiologists are promoting the choice of virtual colonoscopy, a special X-ray test which is less invasive than conventional colonoscopy. How reliable is virtual colonoscopy? What are its advantages and disadvantages? When to begin regular screenings? Also in this edition, listeners share their personal or family experience with Covid, including the experience of loss and living with the sequels of long Covid.

Guests: Dr. Jorge Soto, Professor of Radiology, Chief of Radiology, Boston Medical Center, Chair of the Department of Radiology, School of Medicine, Boston University, Boston, MA; (Taped interviews) Juan, Radio Listener, Bakersfield, CA; Clarita Cortes, Radio Listener, Monterey, CA.
