MEETING DESCRIPTION:
CTC is a novel imaging technology that has proven to be a viable alternative to double contrast barium enema and colonoscopy for the diagnosis of colorectal cancer in symptomatic patients. Its accuracy, safety and patient acceptability also support its role as a potential screening modality for colorectal cancer and precursor polyps. This congress aims to raise medical awareness of CTC for both patients with symptoms and for colorectal cancer screening.

Acquisition of CTC data and its accurate interpretation require specific knowledge and reading skills. Both local and international experts will provide a mixture of lectures and practical hands-on workstation sessions with endoscopically validated CTC datasets. A wide range of presentations will span the whole field from the rationale for colorectal cancer screening, through acquisition of CTC data and its interpretation, pitfalls, Computer-Assisted Detection (CAD), and the specific implementation of CTC in Asia and the rest of the world. These will be supplemented by discussion and question and answer sessions. I would also like to invite you to submit your scientific papers and posters for the scientific abstract session and poster presentations.
