Potential pitfalls at CTC Interpretation. Jama-Journal of the American Medical Association. At 3D Dthe preservation of the overlying colonic fold is a sign that the lesion is caused by extrinsic impression. Internal hemorrhoids are a relatively common finding and represent dilated vascular structures above the dentate line.

Basics of Anesthesia E-Book. The rectal catheter is visible but the rectal polyp is largely obscured. The presence of inwardly displaced but uninterrupted folds at 3D endoluminal CTC strongly suggests extrinsic impression Fig.

Revision Notes in Intensive Care Medicine. Automated volumetry at CT colonography: A clear distinction must pracgice made between relatively flat lesions, and completely flat or depressed lesionswhich are quite rare. Surgery is indicated for appendiceal mucoceles since almost all lesions are neoplastic and mucinous and are considered at least potentially malignant.


Linear polyp measurement at CT colonography: Extracolonic tumors of the gastrointestinal tract detected incidentally at screening CT colonography. Note the mass effect upon the lesion from the adjacent balloon on the rectal catheter. Elsevier Health Sciences Amazon.

Some CTC protocols target more aggressive dose reduction on the prone view coloonography much of the information is redundant to the supine view. A mass involving or replacing the valve itself can present a more challenging problem Fig. As a service to our customers we are providing this early version of practcie manuscript. In contrast to hemorrhoids, rectal varices have a tubular, serpiginous appearance. Tube current modulation can avoid this discordance by boosting the mA only as needed to maintain a static noise level.

As with any radiologic imaging test, there are a number of potential interpretive pitfalls at CT colonography CTC that need to be recognized and handled appropriately. The prone view had a similar appearance not shown.

Author manuscript; available in PMC Jan 1. On 2D, contrast coating of polyps is easy to distinguish from internal tagging of stool, which is a critical distinction. Abdominal Ultrasound for Surgeons. Polyp windowing reduces the impact of the beam-hardening artifact, and may allow for lesion detection.


In this setting, we administer 30 ml of oof once the patient has adequately recovered from sedation, and wait up to 2—3 hours prior to scanning. This carpet lesion was confirmed at same-day optical colonoscopy D and proved to be a tubulovillous adenoma.

Fold thickening at CTC is largely due to inadequate luminal distention, underlying diverticular disease, or a combination of the two. In patients without a history of appendectomy, partial coonography or rarely even complete intussusception may give rise to an intraluminal polypoid lesion. The Intensive Care Unit Manual. Handbook of Endovascular Interventions.

CT Colonography: Pitfalls in Interpretation

Introduction CT colonography CTC has rapidly evolved into a highly effective minimally invasive test for detecting colorectal polyps and cancers. Robust preparation, distention, scanning, pracrice interpretation techniques will greatly minimize or avoid many pitfalls at CTC.

The minimum requirement for a diagnostic CTC evaluation is to have all segments at least partially distended on at least one view. Careful attention to this area should be considered a routine part of CTC interpretation.
