March 23, 2010 – A study of more than 10,000 asymptomatic screening subjects found that more than one in 200 had unsuspected and typically large but mostly early-stage cancers detected outside the colon at Virtual Colonoscopy. As with asymptomatic colorectal cancers identified by Virtual Colonoscopy screening, these cancers outside of the colon are often detected at an early, curable stage.
