Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article presents information on abstracts related to radiology. An abstract presents information on a protocol for colonic imaging in elderly patients. The options available for imaging the colon have expanded from barium enema (BE) and colonoscopy to include CT pneumocolon and minimal preparation CT. Although BE and colonoscopy are well established, they are limited in elderly patients by being invasive, requiring patients to be mobile and require bowel prep. CT pneumocolon requires bowel prep but is non-invasive, is well tolerated, and allows examination of extracolonic structures.
