C-RADS for CT Colonography
The Working Group on Virtual Colonoscopy published in 2005 a guide to the interpretation of Computed Tomography (CT) colonography results: the CT Colonography Reporting and Data System (C-RADS). It includes a Description of Terms for reporting the size, morphologic features, and location of polyps and masses, a Description of a Reporting Scheme for Colonic and Extracolonic Lesions with Management Recommendations.
BLUEBERRY DIAGNOSTICS has already implemented ―for training or educational purposes―, the last versions of C-RADS for Colorectal Cancer screening and detection. Use is free of charge and not limited.
