A medical procedure in which an instrument known as a sigmoidoscope is used to examine the rectum and lower colon, to detect for cancer or other health issues. This module teaches you how to prepare for and assist with a rigid sigmoidoscopy. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers a clinical scenario that tests your ability to perform this type of routine examination. Practice the steps of the procedures online as often as you want, until you feel confident.

You’ll learn

  • to visualize the anatomy of the rectum and perianal region, with our anatomical illustrations and 3D model
  • how to perform a digital rectal examination
  • to practice and perfect your skills in how to prepare for and assist with a rigid sigmoidoscopy
  • much more (see Content Details for more specific information)
