    40. 40. 2008 New Screening Tests Available
    41. 41. Stool DNA TestRationale behind:Detects blood in the stool – which is intermittent and non-specificColon cells are shed continuouslyPolyps and cancer cells contain abnormal DNAStool DNA tests look for abnormal DNA from cells that are passed in the stool*Drawbacks:Misses some adenomasStill in testing phaseCost ($300-400)Not covered by all insurance
    42. 42. CTColonography
    43. 43. CTC Image Optical Colonoscopy
    44. 44. CTColonography New Sources of Risk Colorectal cancer prevention largely focuses on finding polyps, but flatter, less visible lesions that are not polyps are also cancer risks.Limitations: PolypRequires full bowel prep (which most patients find Elevated to be the most distressing element of lesion colonoscopy)Colonoscopy is required if abnormalities Flat detected, lesion sometimes necessitating a second bowel prep Depressed lesionSteep learning curve for radiologistsLimited availability to high quality exams in The New York Times: Illustrations by JAMA many parts of the countryMost insurers do not currently cover CTC as a screening modalityCan miss flat, smaller lesions
