What Is a Colon CT Scan?
A colon CT scan is a technologically advanced scan of the colon. Its purpose is to provide digital images of the inside of the colon and document the size and location of abnormalities. Benefits of a colon CT scan over other investigative methods include its ease of use and the fact that sedation is not necessary. The downside of a colon CT is that if abnormalities are found, the patient must then undergo a traditional colonoscopy to have the abnormalities examined or removed. Typically, a colon scan is an x-ray of the entire colon and rectum. The patient is placed on an examination table and the CT machine moves around his or her body taking images for study. A specialized program allows the machine to take two-dimensional and three-dimensional photos of the colon and rectum. This provides very detailed views of polyps, malformations, or other problems. The CT scan is a fairly quick procedure, with repeat examinations recommended every five years. Patients do not have to be sedated, which means they can drive themselves to and from the appointment. Small polyps are sometimes missed during the procedure, and false positive test results have also occurred. In the days leading to the procedure, most patients are asked to take in only liquids. The night before the procedure, the patient drinks a cleansing solution that causes the body to flush the colon through bowel movements. This cleans out the colon so that the best images can be taken. A colon scan is less invasive than a traditional colonoscopy, although both of them use a tube to pump the colon full of air. The difference is that the traditional colonoscopy sends a tube with a camera throughout the entire colon length, while the CT procedure only requires a short air tube that is placed just inside the rectum. Some patients experience mild cramping as the colon is filled with air. The colon scan procedure takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Possible complications from a colon CT scan include a small risk of the colon wall rupturing or becoming damaged from the air pressure filling it up. Side effects such as cramping and bloating are possible. The patient is exposed to a small amount of radiation during the procedure, as it is an x-ray. Patients who have a colon CT scan that identifies abnormalities will undergo a traditional colonoscopy for further examination and tissue or polyp removal for biopsy. Once a problem is identified on a colon CT scan, the patient is typically monitored more closely. Scans every three to five years are usually recommended at that point.

Crohn's disease: the inside story - futuris
Crohn's disease: the inside story Around 700,000 Europeans are diagnosed with Crohn's disease each year. Specialists at University College hospital in central London, are exploring new ways to detect the disease and help patients cope with its symptoms. Crohn's suffer Jill Fellows said: "It really is a very nasty disease, and people need to be able to realize that, and really don't have the mentality that it is just going to the bathroom all the time, because it is so much more than that. "You get Crohn´s arthritis; I got my hands literally seized up. I got affected in my hip as well. Also I had Crohn's in my eye, which [got swollen]. This disease virtually knocks your immune system even more. So you are so susceptible to everything". The condition causes inflammation of the intestine and symptoms can vary. "I had horrendous stomach pains, I had horrendous diarrhea and also I was bleeding. So obviously something was not quite right," said Crohn's patient Andrew Gilbert. "At the end of the day, they operated on me. They thought it was a split bowel so effectively they opened up the bowel and sent me on my way but the pain just got worst and worst. "It took a good 2, maybe 3 years before they could find that it was Crohn's disease, because I went through so many tests," he added. Crohn´s disease is usually diagnosed through X-Rays or invasive techniques like endoscopy or colonoscopy. But at this hospital, researchers from a European project are testing brand new ways to diagnose it using the latest available medical imaging technology. Radiologists are testing magnetic resonance to look for signs of local bowel wall thickening, a common early sign of the disease. Stuart Taylor, a Radiologist at University College London Hospitals, said: "If you look at this example here [graphic], you can see an abnormal loop of small bowel here. And this is affected by Crohn´s disease, it is much thicker here than the normal small bowel adjacent to it. "From the patients' point of view this is a very safe test. We don't do any radiation, so therefore there is no long-term disadvantages to the patient". Magnetic resonance images offer 3D capabilities and can be matched with computer models, which can predict some physiological processes in the patient's bodies. A big help for gastroenterologists to prescribe the more appropriate treatment for each patients' particular needs. Sot Alastair Forbes, a Gastroenterologist at University College London Hospitals said: "We are now in a position where we can make a fairly confident radiological diagnosis. We can say: the patient has Crohn's disease, or the patient has stenosis, the patient has fibrosis, or the patient has inflammation. "We can then semi-automate that by the computer analysis, using all the various scientific algorithms, that come within the program, then we stand the chance of fine tuning that even further". Researchers hope these new and more accurate methods will keep sufferers better informed of their condition, which is very much welcomed. "Research is fundamental, you know. We have to find out what causes the disease, and if there could be a cure eventually. Specially for the youngsters now, because it is heartbreaking to see so many young people with it," said Jill Fellows. "We are doing more fundamental research enabling that a patient is more accurately assessed. And I think that this technology will be used in the future in the next, let's say, four years or so," said Frans Vos, a Physicist, Delft University of Technology. Experts hope the same computing imaging will soon help tackle other inflammatory bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis.

Colonoscopy of Sigmoid Colon Cancer
Colorectal cancer (also called cancer of the bowel or bowel cancer). Most cases occur in people aged over 50. If colorectal cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, there is a good chance of a cure. In general, the more advanced the cancer (the more it has grown and spread), the less chance that treatment will be curative. However, treatment can often slow the progress of the cancer. Polyps and colorectal cancer A bowel polyp (adenoma) is a small growth that sometimes forms on the inside lining of the colon or rectum. Most bowel polyps develop in older people. About 1 in 4 people over the age of 50 develop at least one bowel polyp. Polyps are benign (noncancerous) and usually cause no problems. However, sometimes a benign polyp can turn cancerous. If one does turn cancerous, the change usually takes place after a number of years. Most colorectal cancers develop from a polyp that has been present for 5-15 years. What causes colorectal cancer? The exact reason why a cell becomes cancerous is unclear. It is thought that something damages or alters certain genes in the cell. This makes the cell abnormal and multiply out of control. See separate leaflet called 'Cancer - What Causes Cancer?' for more details. Risk factors Although colorectal cancer can develop for no apparent reason, there are certain risk factors which increase the chance that colorectal cancer will develop. Risk factors include: Ageing. Colorectal cancer is more common in older people. Eight out of ten people who are diagnosed with colorectal cancer are older than 60 years. If a close relative has had colorectal cancer (there is some genetic factor). If you have familial adenomatous polyposis or hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer. However, these are rare inherited disorders. If you have ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease (conditions of the colon) for more than 8-10 years. Obesity. Lifestyle factors: little exercise, drinking a lot of alcohol.
Endoscopy Polypectomy of Polyp of Descending Colon
Endoscopy Polypectomy of Polyp of Descending Colon This is a 21 year old lady that presented with Gi bleeding a colonoscopy was performed finding this ulcerated polyp that was removed with polypectomy TYPES OF COLON POLYPS The most common types of polyps are hyperplastic and adenomatous polyps. Other types of polyps can also be found in the colon, although these are far less common and are not discussed here. Hyperplastic polyps — Hyperplastic polyps are usually small, located in the end-portion of the colon (the rectum and sigmoid colon), have no potential to become malignant, and are not worrisome. It is not always possible to distinguish a hyperplastic polyp from an adenomatous polyp based upon appearance during colonoscopy, which means that hyperplastic polyps are often removed or biopsied to allow microscopic examination. Adenomatous polyps — Two-thirds of colon polyps are adenomas. Most of these polyps do not develop into cancer, although they have the potential to become cancerous. Adenomas are classified by their size, general appearance, and their specific features as seen under the microscope. As a general rule, the larger the adenoma, the more likely it is to eventually become a cancer. As a result, large polyps are usually removed completely to prevent cancer and for microscopic examination to guide follow-up testing. Malignant polyps — Polyps that contain pre-cancerous or cancerous cells are known as malignant polyps. The optimal treatment for malignant polyps depends upon the extent of the cancer (when examined with a microscope) and other individual factors. COLON POLYP DIAGNOSIS Polyps usually do not cause symptoms but may be detected during a colon cancer screening examination (such as flexible sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy) (picture 1) or after a positive fecal occult blood test. Polyps can also be detected on a barium enema x-ray, although small polyps are more difficult to see with x-ray. Colonoscopy is the best way to evaluate the colon because it allows the physician to see the entire lining of the colon and remove any polyps that are found. During colonoscopy, a physician inserts a very thin flexible tube with a light source and small camera into the anus. The tube is advanced through the entire length of the large intestine (colon). The inside of the colon is a tube-like structure with a flat surface with curved folds. A polyp appears as a lump that protrudes into the inside of the colon (picture 1). The tissue covering a polyp may look the same as normal colon tissue, or, there may be tissue changes ranging from subtle color changes to ulceration and bleeding. Some polyps are flat ("sessile") and others extend out on a stalk ("pedunculated"). Colonoscopy is also the best test for the follow-up examination of polyps. Virtual colonoscopy using CT technology is another test used to detect polyps in specific circumstances. COLON POLYP REMOVAL Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States, accounting for 14 percent of cancer deaths. Colorectal cancer is preventable if precancerous polyps (ie, adenomas) are detected and removed before they become malignant (cancerous). Over time, small polyps can change their structure and become cancerous. Polyps are usually removed when they are found on colonoscopy, which eliminates the chance for that polyp to become cancerous. Procedure — The medical term for removing polyps is polypectomy. Most polypectomies can be performed through a colonoscope. Small polyps can be removed with an instrument that is inserted through the colonoscope and snips off small pieces of tissue. Larger polyps are usually removed by placing a noose, or snare, around the polyp base and burning through it with electric cautery. The cautery also helps to stop bleeding after the polyp is removed. Polyp removal is not painful because the lining of the colon does not have the ability to feel pain. In addition, a sedative medication is given before the colonoscopy to prevent pain caused by stretching of the colon. Rarely, a polyp will be too large to remove during colonoscopy, which means that a surgical procedure will be needed at a later time.

CT scan - Lung cancer
My mom (age:64) Asian diagnosed with lung cancer. Summary: She is diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer with rib cage bone metastasis. X-ray, CT on Thorax and Adomen, MRI on spine, blood test, Sputum cytology taken. CT scan show diffused nodules on both lung with consolidation on the upper left lobe. MRI shows compression fracture on T9 and T12 and minor press on spinal code. Blood test shows elevation of CEA tumor marker, 50x of normal reading. Sputum cytology suspect of Adenocarcinomas. Treatments: She has RT therapy for 2 weeks to treat the back pain followed by a week rest before Iressa intake for 6 days. Before the Iressa, she is on oxygen support but she is able to put it off for hours. After the iressa, she relied on the oxygen support more heavily and still breathless. There is an acute onset of dyspnea or worsening of the breathlessness, with cough and fever. She is under antibiotic and cough mixture to control the lung infection. Diagnosis (details) before treatment: Radiograph of the chest - There are extensive patchy confluent parenchymal opacities in both lungs with a larger opacity in the left upper/mid lung (measuring 3 x 4 cm); these are likely of infectious etiology. An underlying mass in the left upper/mid lung cannot be excluded. There are no pleural effusions. The heart size is within normal limits.Mild degenerative changes of the spine are noted. Blood Test: Alphafetoprotein 13 ug/L (0-9 normal) CEA 252 ug/L (0-5 normal) CA125 15 U/mL (0-35 normal) CA19-9 12 U/mL (0-35 normal) Sputum cytology - Atypical cells suspicious of adenocarcinoma (3ml of bloodstained mucoid fluid was used, 4 slides examined show a moderate cell yield. Atypical cells showing enlarged nuclei with coarse chromatin and pleomorphic nucleoli are noted. The cytoplasm are vacuolated. Microorganism and inflammatory cells including neutrophils and lymphocytes are noted in the background) CT THORAX AND ABDOMEN IV contrast-enhanced multi-slice contiguous axial sections of the thorax and abdomen were obtained. Total 90 ml of intravenous Omnipaque 350 were administered as contrast medium. Comparison was made with previous study dated 05/02/07. Diffuse subcentimeter nodules are seen in both lungs with areas of coalescence. Collapse consolidation of the anterior segment of the left upper lobe with some heterogeneous enhancement near the hilum. There is no pleural effusion detected. The tracheobronchial tree is unremarkable. Enlarged right paratracheal, pertracheal, subcarinal and bilateral hilar lymph nodes are noted. A few right supraclavicular and left axillary lymph nodes are also seen. The mediastinal vessels, cardiac chambers show normal opacification. The visualized thoracic aorta is of normal caliber with no significant thrombus formation. The liver is enlarged and again shows multiple large cysts. Mild interval increase in size of the segment 6 cyst now measuring 10.3x8.3 cm. This is seen displacing the right kidney inferiorly. No suspicious focal lesion is seen. The hepatic and portal vessels show normal enhancement. The biliary tree is not dilated. Gallstones are seen. No evidence of cholecystitis. The visualized pancreas, spleen, kidneys, adrenals and opacified bowel loops are unremarkable. Multiple sclerotic foci are noted along the sternum, thoracolumbar and sacral spine compatible with mestastasis. Compression fracture of T9 vertebral bodies noted. Metastatic body lesions involving the left scapula, right 6th, left 4th, 9th and 10th ribs are noted. Comment: - Collapse of the anterior segment of the left upper lobe with some heterogeneous enhancement near the hilum. Underlying malignancy cannot be excluded. Bronchoscopic biopsy is suggested. - The pulmonary nodules in both lungs are suggestive of metastasis. - Mediastinal lumphadenopathy - Diffuse bony metastasis as described above. - Hepatic cysts, the one in segment 6 showing mild interval increase in size. - Gallstones.

Cross sectional and imaging anatomy of the abdomen
Objectives: This video deals with the anatomy of abdominal viscera and walls as they appear in transverse anatomical sections and axial CT sections. The video begins with a transverse anatomical section at the level of T8 vertebra and continues down to the level of L5 vertebra. There is a special emphasis on sections at the level of T10, T12, L1, L3, & L4. The anatomical sections are arranged to match CT & MRI sections to provide better understanding of the imaging anatomy of the abdomen. The arrangement of abdominal structures is followed in (22) serial transverse sections of the abdomen and compared to 5 representative axial CT sections at different levels. The anatomical sections are selected from the Visible Human Project. For more information about this project refer to: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/visible/visible_human.html Five short video clips are inserted where necessary to explain 3-D relations necessary to understand the 2-D sections. Presented and edited by Dr. Akram Jaffar (PhD). Plastic model clips filmed by Parwiz Akbari (medical student). Filmed at College of Medicine/ University of Sharjah, UAE. 2012. This video and its channel are supported by "Human Anatomy Education" page on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/AnatomyEducation Related video: cross sectional and imaging anatomy of the thorax http://youtu.be/9ftD8nLLOw8 After completion of this video session it is expected that you will be able to identify the approximate vertebral levels of transverse sections from T8-L5 vertebrae. The following structures are identified in transverse anatomical sections or CT axial sections: Vessels: Inferior vena cava (IVC), aorta, esophagus, azygos vein, hepatic vein, portal vein, hepatic artery, splenic artery, splenic vein, celiac trunk, renal vein, superior mesenteric artery, superior mesenteric vein, common iliac artery, basivertebral vein. Viscera: Lungs, liver, spleen, gastroesophageal junction, fissure for ligamentum venosum, gallbladder, caudate lobe, porta hepatis, common hepatic duct, cystic duct; pancreas: head, neck, uncinate process, body, and tail; spleen, hepatic flexure, splenic flexure, kidney; duodenum: first, second, and third part; stomach, pyloric antrum, pyloric canal, pyloric sphincter, ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon, cecum, jejunum, ileum, plicae circularis, rugae, umbilicus.

Staging of colon cancer - Dr. Anil Kamath
Once the person is diagnosed with colon cancer based on the biopsy result, the next step would be to stage the disease.That is to see how much it has spread whether the disease is limited to the colon, or whether it has spread in and around the colon or whether it has spread far off, to the liver and lungs. Various tests like CT scan helps to determine stage of colon cancer.When the colon cancer is in early stage that is, its limited in the colon and around the colon, it would fall under stage 1 or 2.When it has spread far away like to the liver or lungs, it would fall under stage 4.Totally there would be four stages, stage 1,2,3 and 4. Treatment is determined by the stage of the disease.In stage 1-3,the predominant modality of treatment would be surgery.During surgery, affected portion of the colon with the margin that is, additional segment of healthy colon on both the distal side and proximal side is removed and ends of the colon are joined to each other.This operation is called Colectomy. Colectomy can be done in various methods, by open method or laparoscopic method.Surgery is the mainstay of treatment for colon cancer.Depending upon the stage additional modalities like chemotherapy or radiation might also be required for colon cancer..

My channel Gyana Bigyana is based on general knowledge, new tricks and improving special skills of every person, video posted in everyday. CT scan:- A CT scan, also known as computed tomography scan, makes use of computer-processed combinations of many X-ray measurements taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional (tomographic) images (virtual "slices") of specific areas of a scanned object, allowing the user to see inside the object without cutting. Other terms include computed axial tomography (CAT scan) and computer aided tomography. Digital geometry processing is used to further generate a three-dimensional volume of the inside of the object from a large series of two-dimensional radiographic images taken around a single axis of rotation.Medical imaging is the most common application of X-ray CT. Its cross-sectional images are used for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes in various medical disciplines.The rest of this article discusses medical-imaging X-ray CT; industrial applications of X-ray CT are discussed at industrial computed tomography scanning. The term "computed tomography" (CT) is often used to refer to X-ray CT, because it is the most commonly known form. But, many other types of CT exist, such as positron emission tomography (PET) CT produces data that can be manipulated in order to demonstrate various bodily structures based on their ability to absorb the X-ray beam. Although, historically, the images generated were in the axial or transverse plane, perpendicular to the long axis of the body, modern scanners allow this volume of data to be reformatted in various planes or even as volumetric (3D) representations of structures. Although most common in medicine, CT is also used in other fields, such as nondestructive materials testing. Use of CT has increased dramatically over the last two decades in many countries. An estimated 72 million scans were performed in the United States in 2007.One study estimated that as many as 0.4% of current cancers in the United States are due to CTs performed in the past and that this may increase to as high as 1.5 to 2% with 2007 rates of CT use;[8] however, this estimate is disputed,as there is not a consensus about the existence of damage from low levels of radiation. Side effects from intravenous contrast used in some types of studies include kidney problems. Medical use:- Since its introduction in the 1970s, CT has become an important tool in medical imaging to supplement X-rays and medical ultrasonography. It has more recently been used for preventive medicine or screening for disease, for example CT colonography for people with a high risk of colon cancer, or full-motion heart scans for people with high risk of heart disease. A number of institutions offer full-body scans for the general population although this practice goes against the advice and official position of many professional organizations in the field primarily due to the radiation dose applied. Advantages:- There are several advantages that CT has over traditional 2D medical radiography. First, CT completely eliminates the superimposition of images of structures outside the area of interest. Second, because of the inherent high-contrast resolution of CT, differences between tissues that differ in physical density by less than 1% can be distinguished. Finally, data from a single CT imaging procedure consisting of either multiple contiguous or one helical scan can be viewed as images in the axial, coronal, or sagittal planes, depending on the diagnostic task. This is referred to as multiplanar reformatted imaging. CT is regarded as a moderate- to high-radiation diagnostic technique. The improved resolution of CT has permitted the development of new investigations, which may have advantages; compared to conventional radiography, for example, CT angiography avoids the invasive insertion of a catheter. CT colonography (also known as virtual colonoscopy or VC for short) is far more accurate than a barium enema for detection of tumors, and uses a lower radiation dose. CT VC is increasingly being used in the UK and US as a screening test for colon polyps and colon cancer and can negate the need for a colonoscopy in some cases. The radiation dose for a particular study depends on multiple factors: volume scanned, patient build, number and type of scan sequences, and desired resolution and image quality.In addition, two helical CT scanning parameters that can be adjusted easily and that have a profound effect on radiation dose are tube current and pitch. Computed tomography (CT) scan has been shown to be more accurate than radiographs in evaluating anterior interbody fusion but may still over-read the extent of fusion.

Colorectal Cancer & Colon Cancer Hematology Oncologist Jacksonville FL| Oncology Orange Park 32258
http://DrAckermanJacksonvilleOncologist.com Jacksonville FL Hematology Oncologist Dr. Scot Ackerman speaks about uterine, cervical cancers and what is a PET CT-Scan. A PET scan creates pictures of organs and different tissues inside the body. A small amount of a radioactive substance is injected into a patient's body. This substance is absorbed mainly by organs and tissues that use the most energy. Because cancer tends to use energy it absorbs more of the radioactive substance. A scanner then detects this substance to produce images of the inside of the body. To obtain more information please visit your local radiation oncologist. Medical procedures can be performed at First Coast Oncology of Jacksonville FL.
