14 May, 2020

Guidance on performing CT colonography in the early recovery phase of the Covid-19 pandemic has been published.

Jointly created by the British Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (BSGAR) and the SoR, the document provides advice on carrying out CTC and maintaining safe systems of work. This is a practical document to support staff in delivering a safe CTC service to patients as we move into the endemic phase of Covid-19.

Topics include:
- Referral processes
- CTC capacity
- Protecting patients and staff
- Patient preparation
- Scanning considerations
- PPE
- Scanning protocol
- Post-procedure

The guidelines should be implemented in conjunction with the updated 2020 BSGAR CTC Standards and the SoR National Best Practice Guidelines for the CT Colonography Service.
