CTC Training

Radiographers and radiologists responsible for CTC require training in CTC technique, including bowel preparation, patient information and consent, colonic insufflation, CT scan parameters patient/radiation safety.

CTC interpretation requires specialist skills additional to those needed for standard CT reporting. CTC standards for both the NHSBCSP and symptomatic groups recommend that basic training should include:
• hands on training with a minimum of 50 endoscopically validated cases.
• training on anatomy, pitfalls of interpretation (including accurate polyp size estimation), complications, and pathogenesis and epidemiology of colorectal cancer.
