Principles and Practice of Virtual Colonoscopy. As with the ileocecal valve, the vermiform appendix represents another anatomic structure that can give rise to a number of unique findings at CTC interpretation, most notably false polyps and appendiceal neoplasms. CT colonography appearances and endoscopic correlation. This is a PDF file of an unedited manuscript that has been accepted for publication.

Can the CT scout reliably assess for adequate colonic distention at CT colonography? In the future, a better approach might be to give diatrizoate as part of the original OC preparation, which would allow for a reduction in the amount of cathartic needed and also provide fluid tagging for CTC in the event of an incomplete OC examination. For suspected polyps approaching 5—6 mm or greater detected at CTC, we recommend performing a careful combined 2D and 3D size assessment.

Practcie anorectal pitfalls that seem to cause the most trouble at CTC interpretation are hypertrophied anal papillae, internal hemorrhoids, the rectal balloon catheter, and low rectal tumors.

Other editions – View all CT Colonography: Inverted appendiceal stumps simulating large pedunculated polyps on screening CT colonography. Concerns coolnography potential harms from radiation dose exposure related to CT have increased recently in the U. The larger concern stems from potential interpretation by non-radiologists with minimal CTC training and little or no familiarity with either general CT interpretation or the basic physics of medical imaging.

Radiation risk in perspective: However, as long as the lumen is at least partially distended, primary 3D evaluation can generally make this distinction, as the smooth, uniform, and often circumferential nature of incidental fold thickening is readily apparent Fig. Chi ama i libri sceglie Kobo e inMondadori. Focal abnormalities arrows were also noted at the ileocecal valve F and G and the appendiceal orifice F and H. Cases with focal or segmental partial colonogrxphy incomplete collapse may be suboptimal but are often diagnostic.

It is critical not to mistake the image noise within a true lesion on 2D soft tissue windowing or 3D translucency rendering as low-attenuation heterogeneity from stool or fat.

A focal soft tissue protuberance on or adjacent to a fatty valve is suspicious for a true polyp Fig. At 3D Dthe preservation of the overlying colonic fold is a sign that the lesion is caused by extrinsic impression. A number of important artifacts result from post-processing of the MDCT source data.
