American Cancer Society adopts virtual colonoscopy as screening guideline

Health Imaging News, March 10, 2008
The American Cancer Society has decided to support the inclusion of virtual colonoscopy as a front-line screening exam for colorectal cancer. The decision came after the ACS examined the latest published research and preliminary results of recently completed trials. VC is now included as one of several options for colorectal cancer screening and prevention in average-risk adults age 50 years and older and recommended that this population receive the procedure once every five years.
