Chapter

Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to discuss the radiology studies that are diagnostic and therapeutic adjuncts to the Colon and Rectal surgeon’s daily clinical practice. It is imperative that the Colon and Rectal surgeon use radiological studies as a way to narrow a differential diagnosis or treat a specific disease process. To achieve this goal, the surgeon must choose an appropriate radiological study based on the known strengths and limitations of each modality, the anticipated findings and the intended therapeutic outcomes.

Notes
