Abstract

Since the introduction of computed tomographic colonography (CTC) in 1995, many advances in computer equipment and software have become available. A colorectal screening tool to patients, and can be performed safely and at a low cost, hold promise of saving lives in the future. At Mayo Clinic, a positive CTC result occurred on fifteen percent out of two hundred and seventy five examinations. Among these positive results, the specificity has been in excess of ninety five percent.
