Virtual Colonoscopy [1 minute 20 seconds]

High resolution helical CT scans of the abdomen can be processed to segment the large bowel and produce virtual fly-throughs of the bowel for visualization of the colon lumen over its entire extent. Abnormal structures, lesions and polyps are readily identified if such scans are properly and carefully processed.
