Study hypothesis

We aim to analyse the performance of CT colonoscopy performed prior to optical colonoscopy in symptomatic patients over 60 attending for colonoscopy. In a recent consensus statement by the European Society of Abdominal and Gastrointestinal Radiologists all experts had endoscopic correlation for 50 cases and most for over 200. As this is a new technique we aim to formally compare our performance with published sensitivity and specificity data in the literature for quality control.

Primary outcome measures

CT colonoscopy findings will be compared with the planned optical examination which follows. Segmental unblinding of the colonoscopist to the CT results for each colonic segment (on withdrawal of the endoscope) will allow comparison of the sensitivity of CT and optical colonoscopy to detect polyps.
