Screening and Surveillance for the Early Detection of Colorectal Cancer and Adenomatous Polyps, 2008: A Joint Guideline from the American Cancer Society, the US Multi‐Society Task Force on Colorectal…
Clinicians should make patients aware of the full range of screening options, but at a minimum they should be prepared to offer patients a choice between a screening test that is effective at both early cancer detection and cancer prevention through the detection and removal of polyps. Expand
Computed tomographic virtual colonoscopy to screen for colorectal neoplasia in asymptomatic adults.
- P. Pickhardt, J. Choi, +7 authors W. Schindler
- The New England journal of medicine
- 4 December 2003
CT virtual colonoscopy with the use of a three-dimensional approach is an accurate screening method for the detection of colorectal neoplasia in asymptomatic average-risk adults and compares favorably with optical Colonoscopy in terms of the Detection of clinically relevant lesions. Expand
Screening and surveillance for the early detection of colorectal cancer and adenomatous polyps, 2008: a joint guideline from the American Cancer Society, the US Multi-Society Task Force on Colorectal…
Clinicians should be prepared to offer patients a choice between a screening test that is effective at both early cancer detection and cancer prevention through the detection and removal of polyps and those that can detect cancer early and also can detect adenomatous polyps. Expand
Opportunistic Screening for Osteoporosis Using Abdominal Computed Tomography Scans Obtained for Other Indications
- P. Pickhardt, B. D. Pooler, T. Lauder, A. D. del Río, R. Bruce, N. Binkley
- Annals of Internal Medicine
- 16 April 2013
Abdominal CT images obtained for other reasons that include the lumbar spine can be used to identify patients with osteoporosis or normal BMD without additional radiation exposure or cost. Expand
CT colonography reporting and data system: a consensus proposal.
A practical guide to the interpretation of CT colonography results: the CT Colonography Reporting and Data System, or “C-RADS,” is presented, which is coupled to recommendations for follow-up. Expand
Primary neoplasms of the appendix: radiologic spectrum of disease with pathologic correlation.

- 1 May 2003
Cross-sectional imaging, particularly computed tomography (CT), is effective in the evaluation of these neoplasms and appears to be the modality of choice whenever an appendiceal mass is suspected. Expand
Computed tomographic virtual colonoscopy computer-aided polyp detection in a screening population.
The per-patient sensitivity of CT virtual Colonoscopy CAD in an asymptomatic screening population is comparable to that of optical colonoscopy for adenomas > or = 8 mm and is generalizable to new CT virtual colonoscope data. Expand
Intestinal malrotation in adolescents and adults: spectrum of clinical and imaging features.
The imaging features of malrotation in adolescents and adults are reviewed in the context of various clinical scenarios in which it may be encountered and the importance of recognizing this unsuspected diagnosis on imaging is underscored. Expand
Colorectal cancer: CT colonography and colonoscopy for detection--systematic review and meta-analysis.
CT colonography is highly sensitive for colorectal cancer, especially when both cathartic and tagging agents are combined in the bowel preparation, and primary CT colonography may be more suitable than OC for initial investigation of suspected colore CT cancer, assuming reasonable specificity. Expand
Abdominal CT with model-based iterative reconstruction (MBIR): initial results of a prospective trial comparing ultralow-dose with standard-dose imaging.
- P. Pickhardt, M. Lubner, +4 authors G. Chen
- AJR. American journal of roentgenology
- 1 December 2012
MBIR shows great potential for substantially reducing radiation doses at routine abdominal CT and both FBP and ASIR are limited in this regard owing to reduced image quality and diagnostic capability. Expand
