Outcomes & Quality


 A recent report in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded the risk of developing colon 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.  Learn more about the benefits of colonoscopy for the detection of colorectal cancer in this fact sheet.
