The COST trial follow-up protocol included physical examination, including checking for recurrence at wound sites, plus carcinoembryonic
antigen (CEA) testing every 3 months for the first year and then every 6 months for 5 years; chest x-ray every 6 months for 2 years and then annually; and colon evaluation, including colonoscopy or colon radiography, annually for the first year and then every 3 years if the colon was free of neoplasms; and computed tomography (CT) of the abdomen at the physician's discretion.
