It can be predicted that final certifying examinations for young radiologists completing residency training will soon contain examples of CTC studies. This is especially likely in as much as the current generation of trainees is no longer able to perform an adequate number of barium enemas to become proficient. Even though most diagnostic radiologists already consider themselves significantly overworked, it is now inevitable that CTC will be incorporated into daily radiologic practice in the very near future. Also predictable is that the clinical techniques for performing CTC will evolve even further with acquisitions faster, computer aided detection ubiquitous, small polyps ignored and recommendations for further management conveyed in a structured and illustrated computer generated report. Indeed, in leading academic CT research departments, the future is already here.
