Key Takeaways

  1. Familiarity with the indications and contra-indications to CTC.
  2. Familiarity with types of bowel preparation in order to minimize the volume of residual fluid in the colon. Familiarity with the regimes of “minimal preparation” and faecal tagging.
  3. Awareness of the methods of insufflation of the colon. Current recommendations are for the use of automatic pressure-limited insufflation devices. These require a certain degree of training in their use.
  4. Use of various scanning protocols (low-dose, standard-dose +/- IV contrast) dependant on the clinical indication and age of patient. It is common practice to perform prone scans at low-dose and tailor the supine acquisition according to the findings on the prone scan; this requires rapid assessment by the radiologist “on the go.
