Abstract

As with any radiologic imaging test, there are several potential interpretive pitfalls at CT colonography that need to be recognized and handled appropriately. Perhaps the single most important step in learning to avoid most of these diagnostic traps is simply to be aware of their existence. With a little experience, most of these potential pitfalls are easily recognized. This article systematically covers the key pitfalls confronting the radiologist at CT colonography interpretation, primarily dividing them into those related to technique and those related to underlying anatomy. Tips and pointers for how to effectively handle these potential pitfalls are included.
