  • Focus on the radiographer role in the team including consent, technique and primary case review
  • Involvement with the daily CTC service each morning
  • Individual “hands on” state of the art workstations equipped with 2D scrolling, 3D endoluminal flythrough and computer assisted detection (CAD) software
  • Up to date syllabus including patient preparation, colonic distension technique, reading technique
  • Pitfalls and problem solving
  • Full range of endoscopically validated cases including faecal tagging
  • Practical advice on implementation including funding/staffing/technique protocalls and workflow

A well-structured hands-on programme covering clinical and service aspects of CT Colonography. May support outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12 and 22 of CPD Now.
