Trial Information

National CT Colonography Trial


OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Compare the sensitivity of computed tomographic colonography (CTC) vs colonoscopy for
detecting significantly large lesions (≥ 10 mm in diameter) in asymptomatic
participants, in terms of specificity, area under the ROC curve, and predictive values
for detecting clinically significant colorectal neoplasia.

Secondary

- Determine the interobserver variation in accuracy of interpreting CTC examinations of
these participants, including any benefits of a primary 3-dimensional read and/or
independent second interpretations.

- Determine the effects of different colon preparations on the accuracy of CTC in these
participants.

- Compare participant acceptance and willingness to have a repeat examination by CTC vs
colonoscopy.

- Determine the accuracy of CTC in detecting flat lesions in the colon of these
participants.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.

Participants receive an oral laxative, oral bisacodyl, and three doses of oral barium
sulphate 24 hours before imaging. After cathartic cleansing, participants undergo computed
tomographic colonography followed by colonoscopy.

Participants are followed up for approximately 4 weeks.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 2,607 participants will be accrued for this study.
