London: No need to undergo unpleasant examinations to spot an early symptom of bowel cancer – one of the deadliest. Now, scientists claim to have developed a new test which can detect the disease from outside one`s body.
However, the CT colonoscopy is only available at John Radcliffe in Oxford and St Mark`s Hospital in North-West London as of now. But, its use is expected to spread as a study on its efficiency is published later this year. In fact, that study, led by Prof Steve Halligan, a clinical radiologist at University College Hospital London, is likely to say that not only is it safer and more comfortable than the existing way, it is also equally effective, the British newspaper report said.
