The clinical significance of performing computed tomography (CT) for acute lower gastrointestinal bleeding (LGIB) remains unknown. This study aimed to evaluate the role of urgent CT in acute LGIB settings. The cohort comprised 223 patients emergently hospitalized for LGIB who underwent early colonoscopy within 24 h of arriving at the hospital, including 126 who underwent CT within 3 h of arrival. We compared the bleeding source rate between two strategies: early colonoscopy following urgent CT… CONTINUE READING
