Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thank You for contacting HealthcareMagic. My name is Dr Muhammad Ali Rauf & i will look into your problem.

I have gone through your query & would try to help you in the best possible way. If you want to see the inside (lumen) of bowel/intestine then colonoscopy/ sigmoidoscopy is better option. However if you can tell me the reason for undergoing this investigation then i would be in a better position to guide you further.

Thank You
