- 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
