Nonetheless, it is the 2D display that provides the most definitive assessment for equivocal findings seen on 3D.

Linear polyp measurement at CT colonography: Differential diagnosis of polypoid lesions seen at CT colonocopy virtual colonoscopy Radiographics.

A more extensive review with hundreds of illustrations practlce be found in our dedicated referenced textbook. Focuses on images, with the text serving as context for the proper use and understanding of VC. Principles and Practice of Virtual Colonoscopy. Overall rating No ratings yet 0. The appendiceal orifice is usually easily identified at CTC, allowing for detection of true polyps that are adjacent to but separate from the appendix. A number of important artifacts result from post-processing of the MDCT source data.

CT Colonography: Pitfalls in Interpretation

Polyp measurement on soft tissue windows could lead to inappropriate management. Atypical thickened folds will occasionally need confirmation at OC; biopsy is sometimes necessary, but often yields only normal mucosa.

Collnoscopy illustrated in full color, this pioneering book describes CT colonography from pathogenesis, staging and treatment through indications, technique, and interpretation for the most common pathologies.

Principles of Flexible Endoscopy for Surgeons. How to write a great review Do Say what you liked best and least Describe the author’s style Explain the rating you gave Don’t Use rude and profane language Include any personal information Mention spoilers or the book’s price Recap the plot.


In contrast, lesion conspicuity at 3D is greatly enhanced but requires adequate CTC software for execution.

Evaluation of submucosal lesions of the large intestine: Prospective blinded evaluation of computed tomographic colonography for coolonoscopy detection of colorectal polyps. Although CAD has been advanced as a way to compensate for inadequate training, clonoscopy notion ignores the fact that poor specificity would lead to an unacceptable false-positive rate.

Radiation risk in perspective: Of greatest concern among anorectal pitfalls if the possibility of missing a low rectal tumor or anal cancer. Polyp Measurement Although CTC is the most accurate method available for polyp measurement, 30 inaccurate size assessment remains an important potential pitfall because it could lead to inappropriate patient management.

CT colonography; principles and practice of virtual colonoscopy. (DVD included).

Handbook of Endovascular Interventions. Item s unavailable for purchase.

Additional reasons include that glucagon is generally not effective, Buscopan is not available in the U. Anesthesia Student Survival Guide. In such cases, decubitus positioning colonpscopy even conversion to manual room air may be necessary on occasion Fig.

One potential pitfall that has actually become a useful interpretive asset is the tendency for true soft tissue polyps, particularly flat and villous lesions, to demonstrate ad thin surface coating of adherent positive oral contrast Fig.

We’ll publish them on our site once we’ve reviewed them. Surgery is indicated for appendiceal mucoceles since almost all lesions are neoplastic and mucinous and are considered at least potentially malignant.

The prone view had a similar appearance not shown.

The mass was confirmed at OC E but colonogrphy biopsies were inconclusive. You submitted the following rating and review. With time and experience, recognizing the range of normal and knowing when to suspect an abnormality on or near the valve eventually become easier tasks. With proper awareness, these potential pitfalls can be effectively managed so as to minimize any negative impact on diagnostic performance.


This issue is exacerbated in morbidly obese patients, where the low-pressure CO 2 cannot overcome extracolonic pressures. From reference 5with permission.

CT Colonography: Pitfalls in Interpretation

Note the lack of motion or artifacts elsewhere on the image. Carpet lesions of the colon. Occult colorectal polyps on CT colonography: A focal soft tissue protuberance on or adjacent to a fatty valve is suspicious for a true polyp Fig. Unlike barium enema prlnciples, the diverticula themselves cause little problem at CTC interpretation.

No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! Online assessment of the 2D images for adequate left-sided distention during CTC examination should be made by the technologist at the CT console because the scout view alone can be unreliable or misleading.

The study is generally performed on older adults and excludes most of the chest. In this review, we have covered a wide array of potential pitfalls at CTC interpretation. Supine 2D CTC images A and B show long-segment collapse of the sigmoid colon, largely obscuring a mm polyp arrowswhich is easily identified on the alternate position C and D.

In our experience, a false positive interpretation due to residual stool is extremely rare when using our dedicated cathartic preparation with the dual contrast tagging regimen.

With proper attention to technique, including patient preparation, colonic distention, and scanning protocol, in practicw to a combined 2D-3D interpretive strategy, the vast majority of these potential pitfalls can be handled appropriately.

Unless the lesion is at or near a critical size threshold i.
