Colorectal cancer diagnostic services
Our team of gastroenterologists offers diagnostic testing for colorectal cancer. They include:
- Transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) — With this leading-edge imaging technology, doctors can gather information about rectal and anal polyps and tumors. TRUS uses sound waves to create 360-degree images of the anal canal and rectum. The images help doctors determine the depth of a tumor and if it has spread into the wall of the rectum and adjacent lymph nodes.
If you need access to other types of gastroenterological care services, we make it convenient through our HCA Florida Healthcare family of hospitals across the state.
