I have been experiencing abdominal pain for many, many years and have
had all kinds of tests to find out what is wrong. My last colonoscopy
(about 3 years ago) could not be totally completed because the pain
level was so extreme the doctor could not insert the scope all the way
up into my upper right abdomen. He recommended that I go and get a
Barium enema and lower GI xrays. I never did go for that test.
  I would like to have research done on two related things:
   1)What non-invasive advanced technology is available now to
thoroughly diagnose any illness, tumors or malfunction in all of the
internal organs (pancreas, stomach, liver, gall bladder, kidneys,
small and large intestines)preferably in one diagnostic test (such as
new total scanning technology).
   2)Is this testing available in Syracuse NY area and who is the most
high ranking (by reputation and experience and history of success
and/or lack of negative incidences) Gastroenterologist in the Syracuse

   I will be anxiously awaiting your answers so that I can proceed to
make some decisions.

  Thanks, Judy

You're asking three questions here, since part 2 is actually two
separate research projects. The Researcher who takes this on will need
to answer all three in order to earn $6 (the Researcher's share of
your $8 fee). For a good response, I suggest that you increase the
price or reduce the scope of the question (or both).

Some of the information here may be of interest to you:

First of all, go and find a gastroenterologist who will do your
colonoscopy under anaesthetic. You should not be aware of any pain or
discomfort during the procedure because you should be knocked out!!!
Your poor thing.

I think you'll find that a gastroenterologist who knows enough to do a
colonoscopy under anaesthetic will also know some new diagnostic
approaches to help find your problem such as nuclear medicine,
ultrasound, Hidascans, MRI and CAT scans.

Have you considered using telemedicine, and India, at one-tenth the
cost, as mentioned in
