Outcomes & Quality

A recent report in the New England Journal of Medicine found that the risk of developing colorectal cancer may depend partly on having a doctor who often spots precancerous growths during patients' colonoscopy screenings. For every 1% increase in the physician’s adenoma detection rate there is a 3% decrease in the odds of the patient developing colon cancer over the next decade.
