Computerized Tomographic Colonography Compared With Standard Diagnostic Procedures in Detecting Colorectal Neoplasia

2014-08-27 03:57:38 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: New diagnostic procedures such as computed tomographic colonography may provide a less invasive method of identifying patients who have colorectal neoplasia.

PURPOSE: Diagnostic study to compare the effectiveness of computerized tomographic colonography with that of standard diagnostic procedures in detecting colorectal neoplasia.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Compare retrospectively the accuracy of computerized tomographic colonography (CTC) vs pathology and colonoscopy in the detection of clinically important colorectal neoplasia, defined as at least one proven lesion with a diameter measuring at least 1 cm. II. Compare the physician image display preferences and interpretation time across three viewing platforms for CTC images.

OUTLINE: This is a retrospective, multicenter study. Radiologists evaluate each patient's optimal diagnostic computerized tomographic colonography (CTC) data. Patients' CTC findings are evaluated by a radiologist at a central facility using an imaging display software platform from General Electric, Vital Images, or the Mayo Clinic. CTC findings are compared with conventional colonoscopy findings and pathologic analysis. A comparison is made between physician image display preferences and interpretation time across three viewing platforms for CTC images.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 90 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.

Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.

Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.

An imaging technique using compounds labelled with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides (such as carbon-11, nitrogen-13, oxygen-15 and fluorine-18) to measure cell metabolism. It has been useful in study of soft tissues such as CANCER; CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM; and brain. SINGLE-PHOTON EMISSION-COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY is closely related to positron emission tomography, but uses isotopes with longer half-lives and resolution is lower.

Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.
