CT colonogra- phy in symptomatic patients is now increasingly reimbursed but coverage is somewhat limited and inconsistent. In light of the recently published joint guidelines from the American Cancer Society, the US Multi-Society Task Force on Colorectal Cancer, and the American College of Radiology (Levin et al. 2008a, b), one would hope that this would improve. Where this is not the case, Radiologists must be able to address and discuss these issues with their local health insurance companies to ensure that the interests of their patients are protected and that they are appropriately reimbursed for capital costs and their professional time.

Appropriate audit and quality control will assess the various systems involved in a CT colonography service from the time an appointment is made right through to patient follow-up so that potential deficiencies can be identified and appropriate changes implemented as required.
