Virtual colonoscopy is a rapidly developing technique that promises to be safer, more economical, and less intrusive than conventional diagnostic tests for colon cancer. This procedure allows the physician to look inside the body without having to insert a long tube into the colon, as in conventinal colonoscopy, or filling the colon with liquid barium, as with barium enema. VC has attracted the attention of the media and the public as a much-lauded alternative to current techniques. In response to this demand, renowned radiologist Dr. Abraham Dachman and a distinguished list of international contributors have put together a comprehensive atlas that depicts the entire range of this new technique. The illustrations are clear and true to life, showing normal and abnormal findings in virtual colonoscopy. This unique resource also points out critical clinical elements in using VC and summarizes the state of the art. The "Atlas of Virtual Colonoscopy" fills a void for all radiologists and gastroenterologists needing to or simply interested in learning about this exciting new technique.
