Caption: 3D computed tomography (CT) scan of the large intestine of an obese 52 year old woman with megacolon. Megacolon is a condition where the large intestine becomes massively enlarged and dilated. This leads to paralysis of the peristaltic muscles (muscles that contract the bowel to push food along). Symptoms include severe constipation and a distended abdomen.
