Only colon: Only colon it is supposed to replace colonoscopy so far not as good

Focus on GI tract.: While the initial pictures may reveal general findings within the abdomen and pelvis, the study is geared towards the computer-generated reconstruction of the large intestines to create the "virtual colonoscopy". This rendering is reviewed by the radiologist.
