"As barium enema rapidly gives way to the era of virtual colonoscopy (VC), increasing numbers of radiologists and gastroenterologists need a guide to navigate this transition. The second edition of 'Virtual Colonoscopy: A Practical Guide' has arrived to fulfil this need. ... I would highly recommend this practical and informative book to anyone interested in virtual colonoscopy. I would particularly recommend it for radiologists making the transition from barium to VC, radiographers and perhaps most of all, sceptical colonoscopists." (Owen Epstein, RAD Magazine, December, 2010)

It fulfills its purpose and is an excellent resource for radiologists and radiology residents who are involved in performing and interpreting virtual colonoscopy."
