This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
To determine the accuracy of single-measurement blood CEA as a triage test to prompt further investigation for CRC recurrence after curative resection.
To identify sources of between- and within-study heterogeneity to inform potential subsequent analyses.
