Core Tip Computed tomography colonography (CTC) is an important imaging technique with significant advantages over optical colonoscopy in terms of less invasiveness, better compliance, and assessment of extracolonic structures. Ionizing radiation is the most significant burden of this technique. This opinion review comprehensively addresses the radiation risk in CTC with imaging technology refinements that should be used to lower radiation doses.
