Colonoscopy is one of the most common endoscopic procedures worldwide. In this eLearning video the very basics of colonoscopy are described: the introduction of the endoscope into the cecum. Detailed descriptions of other aspects, such as bowel preparation, sedation, colonic inspection, quality-assessment, therapeutic procedures and advanced endoscopic imaging techniques will be shown in future teaching modules.
