Diverticulosis, or outpouchings of the colon wall, are common anomalies and not related to UC. In some people they can become infected (diverticulitis), but many people have them and never have any symptoms. I think a majority of people over 50 have diverticulosis, and it's common even in 20's.
Your findings of atrophy and pseudopolyps are of concern and I'm sure the CT is to follow up on those. It will help determine the thickness of the colon wall and the extent of scarring. Among other things, this can help assess whether you are at risk for perforation.
