[automatically translated] The Virtual colonoscopy (VC) via computerized multi-layer tomography (MSCT) is a known and valuable technical alternative to optical colonoscopy for the evaluation of the colon wall and the identification of new lesions. The main drawback to its execution is patient exposure to ionizing radiation. This is the reason why guidelines recommend procedures for acquiring low standardized dosing times to minimize the exposure radiation. We retrospectively examined the impact in terms of exposure to ionizing radiation based on the patient's position and the scan time. .
