Since its inception, one of the main advantages of computed tomography colonography (CTC) over colonoscopy has been its assumed superior safety profile. However CTC is not without complication and adverse events are well described. Although the risks of insufflation, bowel preparation, contrast media and radiation dose are very small, they are not insignificant. This review discusses the potential hazards and complications associated with the technique, and discuss precautions, which may lessen the risk of occurrence.
