1. Patient presentation

  • A 77-year-old woman, with known diverticular disease, presented with a 2-week history of mild
    pelvic pain, not responding to spasmolytic drugs.

  • Her body temperature and white blood cell count were normal.
  • Her primary care physician requested a double-contrast barium enema examination but, after
    discussion with the radiologist, CT colonography was performed because of better diagnostic
    performance and higher patient compliance (please, consider patient’s age).
