  • 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.
