Handbook of Endovascular Interventions. A rare diagnostic pitfall. The real issue with the rectal catheter at CTC, however, is its potential for obscuring a pathologic lesion. Clinical Gastrointestinal Endoscopy E-Book.

We have tried to indicate which pitfalls can be avoided altogether, as well as those that cannot always be avoided but should be recognized as such to prevent mismanagement. Dynamic spilling of the opacified fluid between differential air-fluid levels is almost practce apparent.

Radiologic spectrum of disease with pathologic correlation.

Submucosal venous bleb simulating a flat polyp at CTC 3D endoluminal CTC image A shows a flat plaque-like lesion adjacent to a colonic fold, which appeared to be soft tissue attenuation on 2D correlation not shown. Implications for noninvasive surveillance of unresected colorectal lesions.


Diagnostic performance of primary 3-dimensional computed tomography colonography in the setting of colonic diverticular disease.

Computed tomographic virtual colonoscopy to screen for colorectal neoplasia in asymptomatic adults. Large contrast-coated tubulovillous adenoma involving the ileocecal valve Transverse ccolonography CTC images with polyp A and soft tissue B window settings show a multi-lobulated mass occupying the expected location of the ileocecal valve. Right lateral decubitus position for salvaging adequate luminal distention Supine 2D CTC image A shows long-segment collapse of the sigmoid colon, related to diverticular disease.

Understanding the relative advantages and disadvantages of a noncathartic approach.

Appendiceal Pitfalls 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.

Decubitus positioning B and increase to 25 mm Hg resulted in good luminal distention of this segment, as shown by frontal C and lateral D 3D colon maps.

The review must be at least 50 characters long. With a little experience, most of these potential pitfalls will be easily recognized. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.

From reference 5with permission. Concerns regarding potential harms from radiation dose exposure related to CT have increased recently in the U. Furthermore, true lesions are detectable on 2D within tagged fluid pools without subtraction. These non-neoplastic lesions can be difficult to differentiate from neoplastic disease.


Reducing the radiation dose for CT colonography using adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction: Fortunately, the built-in redundancy of 2D and 3D CTC interpretation allows for ample opportunity for accurate lesion detection in most cases.

The study is generally performed on older adults and excludes most of the chest. Prcatice part of our general intake form, we obtain a surgical history on all patients when scheduling the CTC examination.

CT Colonography: Pitfalls in Interpretation

Manual of Clinical Problems in Pulmonary Medicine. Although laxatives and lavages generally remove the major bulk of fecal volume, residual adherent debris can closely mimic the appearance of soft tissue polyps, especially if not tagged by oral contrast.

For most polyps, the 2D and 3D measurements will be within 1 mm of each other. The minimum requirement for a diagnostic CTC evaluation is to have all segments at least partially distended on at least one view.
