    1. Patient Presentation

    • An 83-year-old woman complained of an altered bowel habit.
    • Optical colonoscopy was not performed because of her advanced age and low compliance to bowel preparation with cathartic drugs.
    • CT colonography was therefore performed.
    • Two years later, at the age of 85 years, she underwent a follow-up CT colonography examination to look for a possible evolution of the initial CT findings.
