Japanese National Computed Tomographic (CT) Colonography Trial
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the sensitivity of CTC in detecting colorectal polyps and cancers in 1,500 subjects at increased risk of colorectal cancer (CRC), using optical colonoscopy as the reference standard.
We will evaluate the sensitivity of CTC in detecting colorectal polyps and cancers (at least 6 mm in diameter) in 1,500 subjects at increased risk of colorectal cancer (CRC), using optical colonoscopy as the reference standard. The primary endpoint will be sensitivity in the detection of colorectal polyps and cancers that are at least 6 mm in diameter. The secondary endpoints will include specificity and predictive values in the detection of colorectal polyps and cancers.
This clinical study will also evaluate the differences of the detection accuracies between human readings with and without computer-aided detection (CAD) that automatically detects colonic lesions in CTC images and presents the detected lesions to the readers. This clinical study will also compare performance between radiologists and gastroenterologists in detecting colorectal lesions in CTC images.
All the CTC images and their interpretations, optical colonoscopy reports and images, and pathology reports of resected colorectal lesion will be prospectively collected from 12 Japanese hospitals participating in the trial. All patients' information will be completely anonymized at each site before any analysis of the data takes place.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Discrete tissue masses that protrude into the lumen of the COLON. These POLYPS are connected to the wall of the colon either by a stalk, pedunculus, or by a broad base.
A variant of ADENOMATOUS POLYPOSIS COLI caused by mutation in the APC gene (GENES, APC) on CHROMOSOME 5. It is characterized by not only the presence of multiple colonic polyposis but also extracolonic ADENOMATOUS POLYPS in the UPPER GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT; the EYE; the SKIN; the SKULL; and the FACIAL BONES; as well as malignancy in organs other than the GI tract.
Inflammation of the COLONIC DIVERTICULA, generally with abscess formation and subsequent perforation.
Colonic Diseases, Functional
Chronic or recurrent colonic disorders without an identifiable structural or biochemical explanation. The widely recognized IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME falls into this category.
Focal accumulations of EDEMA fluid in the NASAL MUCOSA accompanied by HYPERPLASIA of the associated submucosal connective tissue. Polyps may be NEOPLASMS, foci of INFLAMMATION, degenerative lesions, or malformations.
The purpose of this study is to diagnose possible synchronous carcinomas and polyps with MR colonography in patients booked for operation because of carcinoma in the descending or sigmoid...
Several novel imaging technologies are currently used for detection and differentiation of colonic polyps during colonoscopy, such as NBI (Olympus), FICE (Fujinon), and i-Scan (Pentax)....
Computed tomography (CT) colonography has gained widespread multi-disciplinary interest as an evolving noninvasive colorectal screening examination, with the potential of improved patient...
The purpose of this study is to determine if MR colonography with fecal tagging is better using air or water for distension of the colon. Patients referred to colonoscopy are offered MR co...
Asses the clinical performance of dual-energy CTC for the detection of larger polyps 1 cm or larger without cathartic preparation.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: It was the aim of this study to compare the sensitivity and specificity of low-dose CT colonography (CTC) with that of optical colonoscopy (OC) in asymptomatic patients under...
AIM: To compare the endotics system (ES), a set of new medical equipment for diagnostic colonoscopy, with video-colonoscopy in the detection of polyps. METHODS: Patients with clinical or familial risk...
AIM: To evaluate the impact of contrast-enhanced computed tomography colonography (CE-CTC) on laparoscopic surgery planning in patient with stenosing colorectal cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty-ni...
Abstract Objective. Colorectal polyps can be missed even during a meticulous colonoscopy by an experienced colonoscopist. The aim of this study was to investigate patient-, procedure-, and polyp-relat...
BACKGROUND: The available data regarding the prevalence, types, and clinical determinants of colonic polyps in children is limited. AIMS:...
