Optimising Radiological Bowel Imaging Tests (ORBIT)

This project assessed people's experiences and perceptions of CT colonography, a colorectal investigation that may be viable as a preventive cancer screening test. A key aim was to determine people's preferences for how the test should be carried out and compare it with other possible methods in terms of perceived acceptability.

This project was funded by the National Institute for Health Research and was active from 2008 to 2014.
