These are then watched on a nuclear scan to see into which area of the colon these tagged red blood cells leak and collect in pools. An angiogram, which requires a slightly faster pace of bleeding, involves injecting dye directly into the large arteries of the colon (through a needlestick into an artery in the neck or groin, similar to a cardiac catheterization) and watching where the dye leaks out and pools at the site of bleeding.

They may undergo a colonoscopy to document the existence of underlying diverticulosis as the cause of the bleeding, but usually the bleeding has already stopped and it is quite uncommon to find an actively bleeding diverticulum. Because there are usually multiple diverticulum pockets in the colon, the gastroenterologist usually cannot tell which one was the culprit for the bleeding. Furthermore, if someone comes to the hospital with abrupt-onset, painless, bright red blood per rectum and a history of a previous colonoscopy showing diverticulosis, the gastroenterologist may not need to repeat a colonoscopy, but rather will observe the person in the hospital until the bleeding has stopped.
