By

Even endoscopists who already identify adenomas at a higher than average rate can be trained to do better, according to new research presented at the 2011 American College of Gastroenterology annual meeting, held in November.“There is considerable variability in adenoma detection,” said Susan Coe, MD, a third-year gastroenterology fellow at Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Fla. “Studies report endoscopists with rates in the 60s, as well as those with rates below the guideline recommendations. We wanted to look at adenoma detection and specifically at ways to increase adenoma detection through focused endoscopist training.”
