Caption: Colostomy. Doctor using their little finger to digitalise the stoma (dark) of a colostomy in a patient's abdomen. A colostomy is a surgical procedure where a stoma is formed by bringing the healthy end of the large intestine (colon) through the abdominal wall and fixing it in place. They can be permanent or temporary and are commonly used where a section of the colon has been removed (resected) due to colon cancer or other conditions, or where a section of the colon has been operated on and needs to be 'rested' until it is healed and can be re-connected. Digitalisation is used to assess the interior of the intestine in order to detect any physical abnormalities that may affect it functioning correctly.
