American College of Gastroenterology Issues Updated Colorectal Cancer Guidelines
Date:3/5/2009

dated guidelines recommend that at least half of the preparation is given on the day of colonoscopy, rather than all of the preparation on the day before the examination. Additionally, a new recommendation from ACG is that patients be allowed to ingest clear liquids until 2 hours prior to sedation for colonoscopy consistent with practice guidelines of the American Society of Anesthesiologists.

While Virtual Colonoscopy is an Alternative, ACG Notes its Limitations: CT Colonography (also known as "virtual" colonoscopy) is endorsed in the updated ACG guideline as an alternative to colonoscopy every 10 years for patients who decline colonoscopy. The College includes CRC as an alternative in light of recent studies which reveal that CTC has a 90 percent sensitivity for colon polyps larger than 1 centimeter. The College does not consider CTC as an equivalent to colonoscopy as a screening strategy for several reasons: its inability to detect polyps 5 millimeters and smaller, which constitute 80 percent of colorectal neoplasms; false positives are common with CTC; and concerns about the radiation risk associated with one or repeated CT colonography studies, although the exact risk associated with radiation is unclear.
