Mayo Clinic research has even found that knowledge of a positive Cologuard test may improve colonoscopy performance and quality. So if you’re due for a colonoscopy and dreading it (because let’s be honest, who isn’t?), look into some of the modern advances that may make prepping for your appointment a little less scary.
