    1. Patient Presentation

    • A 68-year-old man presented with hematochezia.
    • His medical history revealed an incomplete colonoscopy interrupted for pain 5 years earlier. At
      that time, to complete the colonic examination, CT colonography was also performed and gave
      negative results (dolichocolon).

    • CT colonography was performed for screening.
