Overview

The authors present their own initial experience with virtual colonoscopy. Both benign and malignant stenosing processes of the colon and rectum, which make examining oral parts of the colon using colonoscopy or irrigography impossible, are the main indication for the procedure described. The authors‘ first experience with this method is totally positive. The more experienced the examiners, the better interpretation of the findings not only by radiologists but also by operating surgeons. In certain indications, the examination has its firm place in the algorithm of the facultative examinations prior to the colorectal carcinoma surgical procedures.

Key words:
