Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

The other day, I had the privilege (and yes, I would call it that) of observing and live-tweeting multiple colonoscopies in the Endoscopy Clinic at Intermountain Alta View Hospital in Sandy, Utah using the hashtag #ColonHealth. I took photos and video of the event, highlighting the importance of colorectal screenings to prevent colon cancer. After all, March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness month.


I can’t directly share the photos I took, due to HIPAA laws, but for Unusual, I thought this photo I took and shared on Twitter would qualify – It’s the removal of a 5mm polyp from inside the colon of a patient. Since not many people get to see this, I think it qualifies as unusual. While the photo quality isn’t the best, the unusual factor is there.

Here’s a link to some of the videos I shot at the event, too.

Hope you enjoy the “crappy” videos (Sorry, I had to throw that in somewhere).
