RSNA 2008: Versatile Virtual Colonoscopy Can Also Detect Osteoporosis

CHICAGO, Dec. 2 -- CT colonography has the potential to screen for two diseases at once, researchers said here.

The modality, also known as virtual colonoscopy, can calculate bone mineral density to help identify osteoporotic patients at the same time as they are being screened for colon cancer, Rizwan Aslam, M.B.Ch.B., of the University of California San Francisco, said at the Radiological Society of North America meeting.
