US study supports barium enema for colon screening

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Barium enema for colon cancer screening is cost effective and safer than colonoscopy, according to Dr Daniel Johnson of the Mayo Clinic, Minnesota. Presenting data from an 1,800 patient study at the American Roentgen Ray Society's annual meeting in Washington DC last month, he said enema had detected 111 growths. Over 40% of the patients in the study had no symptoms or risk factors for colon cancer but 29% of the polyps detected were found in this group.
