Incomplete Sigmoidoscopy?

Dawna Posted Wed 02nd of January, 2013 17:14:00 PM

If a flexible sigmoidoscopy stops at the rectosigmoid junction is it considered incomplete?

The physician inserts a scope which must pass the entire rectum, sigmoid colon. The physician then performs an exam of a portion of the descending colon up to the splenic flexure (26 cm–60 cm). Since the sigmoidoscopy is limited to rectosigmoid junction only, hence it will be considered as incomplete.
