    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).
