Colon Screening Programs

Valid: February 18, 2019 - April 30, 2019

Carrying out NBI (Narrow-Band Imaging) colonoscopy is up to 2x more accurate in identifying dangerous polyps in the colon.

Developed in Japan, NBI technique can target an irregularity during its initial stages before it has even developed into a lump. Doctors can carry out an accurate diagnosis and undertake effective treatment immediately. Since 2014, our doctors receive NBI training in Japan. They achieve a detection rate of 70%**, more than 2x the international benchmark of 25%.

Another important benefit is that NBI colonoscopy enables doctors to remove any abnormal tissue safely without the need for further surgeries, thereby saving time, reducing the recovery period and decreasing the risk of complications.

NBI colonoscopy takes a mere 20-30 minutes and is suitable for those aged 45 and above. This makes colon cancer a preventable disease, with 9 out of 10 cases affecting those over the age of 50.

Those with a family history of colon cancer, with chronic colon inflammation or colon polyps face a higher risk of developing colon cancer, as well as persons suffering from various forms of other health disorders, such as diabetes, obesity and fatty liver disease. Although it may seem that these health disorders are not directly related to colon health, they do have the potential to increase a person’s risk of developing colon cancer.
