Abstract

The impact of introducing widespread colorectal cancer (CRC) screening with CT colonography (CTC) on current resource capacity is unknown. Although a relatively large number of MDCT scanners are currently in operation throughout the United States, these existing units already perform studies for a wide array of indications. Our aim was to assess the ability of the available MDCT capacity in the United States to provide population screening with CTC.
