Note: This is a series of images of CT scan in the diagnosis, staging and therapeutic follow-up of colorectal cancers, which I prepared for a talk that I had to give to general practitioners. By ‘prepared’ I mean I had selected representative images and annotated them to show the abnormality to laymen. So this series is not going to be exhaustively informative or educative. I would suggest places like this and this for more information on colorectal cancers for health professionals and patients who stumble in here from search engines.
Oblique coronal MPR image showing a large exophytic mass at the Hepatic Flexure of colon with mild circumferential wall thickening in the Ascending Colon. The ileo-caecal junction is normal. Multiple metastases are seen in the Liver (black arrows).
Sagittal MPR image of the same mass. Both images show iodinated oral contrast in the small bowel, contrast enema in the large bowel and intravenous contrast enhancement of the abdominal organs and blood vessels.
