The aim of this study is to establish if oral barium used for faecal tagging in "prepless" Computed tomography virtual colonoscopy is effective and gives reproducible results. No areas of non-tagged stool were identified in this study. The table shows means of tagged stool areas for each colonic area. Measurement of the efficacy of the stool tagging agent is reproducible. This will allow comparison of bowel preparation and the future refinement of bowel preparation regime and dosage.

    Background: Dimensions of the bony cochlear nerve canal (BCNC) have been proposed as a potential diagnostic standard for hypoplasia of BCNC, but the standard remains inconsistent. We have previously found that a helix-like shape appears in normal BCNCs at VE images, whereas, the sign does not...
