(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) -- Citing clinical evidence, coalition urges U.S. panel to approve CT colonography for screening


A growing body of evidence supports the use of CT colonography for colon cancer screening and a U.S. panel should reverse its decision to not endorse the procedure, according to the CT Colonography Coalition.

Currently, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), a panel CMS often turns to for advice when it comes to determining what to reimburse, gave CT colonography (CTC) an “I” grade, meaning more research is needed before the panel can recommend the test. The CTC Coalition wants that to change.
