1. Patient presentation

  • A 73-year-old man with a family history of colorectal cancer (his father died from the disease
    at age 63) underwent routine screening with conventional colonoscopy.

  • Colonoscopy was incomplete, with exploration only up to the hepatic flexure, because of
    redundant colon.
  • The patient was referred for CT colonography.
