 The standardization of routine barium enema(BE)study is mandatory for improving its diagnostic accuracy of colorectal tumors. Recently the way of BE examination enabling the detection of tumors 1 cm or more in size is proposed as the standard one. For that purpose, the development of good bowel preparation is essential and the standardization of proper positioning of subjects and of effective X-ray filming are also important. However because of its low complication rate, the objectivity of the image and its capability of evaluating intra and extra bowel conditions, standardized BE study can be superior to colonoscopic study, so there is need to establish a standardized way to depict lesions smaller than 1 cm in diameter.
