In which part of the colon is splenic flexure located, and can you trace the route of a colonoscope to the location of the splenic flexure?

The colonoscope enters at the rectum then travels the first of four sectors of the approximately 60 inch colon passing from the rectum up the sigmoid colon to the descending colon upward to the splenic flexure (flexure: bend) that joins the descending colon to the horizontal transverse colon.
