Prior cost-effectiveness models analyzing computed tomography colonography (CTC) screening have assumed that patients with lesions measuring ≤5 mm will be referred to optical colonoscopy for polypectomy. However, consensus guidelines for CTC recommend reporting only those polyps that are ≥6 mm in size. The purpose of the current study was to assess the potential harms, benefits, and cost-effectiveness of CTC screening without the reporting of diminutive lesions compared with other screening strategies.
