Mathieu Pioche et al. Colon capsule versus computed tomography colonography for colorectal cancer screening in patients with positive fecal occult blood test who refuse colonoscopy: a randomized trial

This study examined the uptake of less invasive video capsule endoscopy or computed tomography colonography among patients with a positive guaiac fecal occult blood test who refused the recommended colonoscopy. Following an invitation letter, only 5 % and 7 % underwent the proposed procedure in the respective groups, and less than half of patients with positive findings accepted further colonoscopy.
