Abstract

In recent years virtual colonscopy or colonography by scanner has become one of the most valuable developments in radiology of the digestive tract. It is noninvasive, well-tolerated and reliable method for assessment of the colonic mucosa. It is possible that this new technique will revolutionize the detection of colon cancer. The preliminary studies show that its reliability already exceeds that of the double contrast barium enema and approaches that of conventional colonoscopy, which exists since more than 30 years.
