Diverticular Disease

Screening and Tests for Diverticular Disease

In addition a complete medical history and physical examination, your physician may perform a digital rectal examination (DRE) to feel for tenderness, blockage, or blood. A stool sample, abdominal ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT) scan, barium enema, flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, and x-rays may also be part of the diagnostic process.
