Fundamentals of Digital Imaging in Medicine. In contrast to hemorrhoids, rectal varices have a tubular, serpiginous appearance. Unlike barium enema examination, the diverticula themselves cause little problem at CTC interpretation.

CT Colonography: Pitfalls in Interpretation

Surgery is indicated for appendiceal mucoceles since almost all lesions cg neoplastic and mucinous and are considered at least potentially malignant. Note the lack of motion or artifacts elsewhere on the image.

Supine A and B and decubitus C CTC images show an area of persistent wall thickening and luminal narrowing arrowheads in the setting of advanced sigmoid diverticular disease. Occult colorectal polyps on CT colonography: Saunders;with permission.

Tips and pointers for how to effectively handle these potential pitfalls are included. Note how the lesion is barely perceptible prractice the soft tissue window setting D. CT colonography versus colonoscopy for the detection of advanced neoplasia. Subsequent CTC trials adding primary 3D detection alongside 2D review showed markedly improved sensitivity for polyps. Beyond CTC, OC with use of a calibrated probe is probably the next best method, whereas visual estimation at OC is less accurate, and pathologic ex vivo measurement is least accurate of all.


Although any health risks related to CT-level doses in adults are too small to measure, 21 it nonetheless behooves radiology as a specialty to minimize dose to the lowest levels possibly that maintain diagnostic accuracy. Anorectal Pitfalls There are a number of findings specific to the anorectum that deserve attention because they are relatively common and can mimic neoplastic disease.

Flat lesions at virtual and optical colonoscopy: Analysis of air contrast barium enema, computed tomographic colonography, and colonoscopy: The 3D colon map shows the site of this persistent stenosis arrow and red dotwhich proved to be a diverticular stricture.

The artifacts are also evident on the 3D endoluminal view B. From reference 5with permission.

The prevalence and clinical relevance of flat colonic lesions have been the source of great debate. Imaging Artifacts and Distortion There are a wide variety of potential artifacts related principlew CT scanning, image reconstruction, and post-processing that can result in interpretive challenges.

These typically have a polypoid sessile appearance and measure 5—6 mm or less, but can rarely attain a larger size and become pedunculated. Cirtual of nonpolypoid flat and depressed colorectal neoplasms in asymptomatic and symptomatic adults.
