"I always wonder why they take pictures during colonoscopy but don't record on cd/DVD? If they do then if we go for second opinion, we won't have to go through colonoscopy again. May be something to ask."
The colonoscopy video is recorded on the hard drive. They don't want to give you a copy, so they claim it isn't recorded
But your point is excellent. It's also obvious that they would need the recording to defend themselves in court if the patient develops colon cancer.
Apparently most patients don't think this through, so the medics get away with telling this silly story about colonoscopy videos not being recorded.
I think most doctors would give the video recording to another doctor; they just won't give it to you.
