Many people are learning that they need to be much more aware of the importance of the gut in maintaining their health. And many of us know people who struggle with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. In fact, Australia has one of the highest rates of these conditions anywhere in the world. These are inflammatory diseases of the bowel which, if left untreated or poorly controlled, can eventually lead to bowel cancer.

St Vincent’s Curran Foundation recently raised  $175,000 for a specialised intestinal ultrasound. This machine is vital for early detection of irritable bowel disease and offers an excellent non-invasive alternative for monitoring a patient’s progress.
