Partial inversion of appendix simulating a caecal polyp at screening CT colonography: the importance of scrutinising 3D and 2D images of the region of interest to exclude other possible appendiceal pathologies
Keywords:adenomatous, colonoscopy, fly-through, intraluminal, intussusception, polypoidal
An appendiceal lesion at computed tomographic colonography (CTC) could be a range of conditions which presents a diagnostic dilemma. The importance of careful scrutiny of 3D fly-through as well as 3D and 2D images is essential to exclude other possible appendiceal pathologies. A partial and a complete inversion of the appendix at CTC are described.
