This easy-to-use atlas comprises a collection of representative common and unusual virtual colonoscopy (CT colonography, CTC) cases that physicians and radiologists may expect to encounter during their clinical practice. The atlas reflects the important recent advances in image acquisition, patient preparation, and image processing and is thus completely up-to-date. Each case is presented with the native CT images, integrated images obtained by 3D image processing, and colonoscopic correlation. Topics covered include normal appearances, anatomical variants, pitfalls, diverticula, lipomas, inflammatory bowel disease, polyps, flat lesions, cancers, and the postsurgical colon. By presenting the main features of anatomy and pathology, this atlas will serve as an invaluable tool both for radiologists performing CTC and for clinicians who need to review the CTC examinations of their patients.

From the reviews:
"Practising radiologists interested in a helpful bench book for this powerful imaging tool will find much utility in its pages. ... The full color images provided liberally throughout the book are quite simply superb, with beautiful reproductions of real CTC studies. ... I believe this volume will be an invaluable resource for anyone who reports CTCs and I highly recommend it, without reservation." (Daniel J. Bell, RAD Magazine, March, 2014)
