  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 An 85-year-old man suffering from colonic cancer, visited the Cancer Institute Hospital, because of anemia. Endoscopic examination disclosed annular advanced colonic cancer with stenosis in the right side colon. 3D-CT colonography showed stenosis with a deep ulceration,4.5 cm in length, in the ascending colon. There was no obvious lesion at the oral side of the cancer. In addition, minimal invasion or adhesion to the abdominal wall was suspected. Surgical specimen showed annular carcinoma adhering to the abdominal wall.

 3D-CT colonography is a good means for assessing what stage a colonic cancer is in, before undertaking a surgical operation.
