Virtual colonoscopy can help patients avoid conventional colonoscopy
The significance of a detected colon polyp matches
closely with the confidence score of an interpreting radiologist using virtual colonoscopy. This suggests that virtual colonoscopy may help determine if polyp removal is truly needed, thereby avoiding overuse of invasive conventional colonoscopy, acc...
