Computed Tomographic Colonography in Screening Healthy Participants for Colorectal Cancer
Basic Trial Information
RATIONALE: New diagnostic procedures such as computed tomographic colonography may improve the ability to detect colorectal cancer and may provide a less invasive method of detection.
PURPOSE: This clinical trial is studying how well computed tomographic colonography works in screening healthy participants for colorectal cancer.
Further Study Information
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Participants receive an oral laxative, oral bisacodyl, and three doses of oral barium sulphate 24 hours before imaging. After cathartic cleansing, participants undergo computed tomographic colonography followed by colonoscopy.
Participants are followed up for approximately 4 weeks.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 2,607 participants will be accrued for this study.
