    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.
