Intensive Training Boosts Adenoma Detection Rates

Posted on November 7th, 2011 by

Intensive training can boost endoscopists' adenoma detection rates, even experienced endoscopists, according to findings from a study presented here at the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) 2011 Annual Scientific Meeting and Postgraduate Course…The adenoma detection rate, or the percentage of patients with at least 1 adenoma among all the patients having colonoscopy, rose to 47% from 36% for the group of endoscopists that got special training, said lead author Susan Coe, MD, a third-year gastroenterology fellow at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida.
