This compact book is all-inclusive and ideal for both beginners and more experienced examiners who want to deepen their knowledge of this powerful technique.
“Very importantly, this book provides explicit advice for producing a clinically useful report (C-rads), handling extra-colonic findings, and reducing radiation dose, and clearly describes the role of computer-assisted detection of polyps and intravenous contrast material in this examination … Drs. Mang and Schima deserve congratulations for producing an invaluable resource that is comprehensive and, at the same time, user friendly and practical.” – From the Foreword by Richard M. Gore, MD, FACR, FACG
Containing all methods and techniques that follow current international guidelines and consensus statements, this book offers easy-to-implement, standardized clinical protocols that can be applied in both clinic and private practice settings.
