Colonoscopy Quality Critical Factor to Thorough Exam and Best Colon Cancer Detection
Date:1/13/2009

lished studies of screening colonoscopy by gastroenterologists in the United States have exceeded the 95 percent threshold, which in fact is the basis for the 95 percent recommendation," explained Dr. Rex.

When the data from the non-peer reviewed single-center study are excluded, only 4,929 procedures are available for analysis, and in these cases the cecal intubation rate was 83.5 percent, more than 10 percent lower than the recommended 95 percent threshold.

Furthermore, other data indicate that primary care physicians are less likely than gastroenterologists to recommend colonoscopy at appropriate intervals according to widely accepted guidelines (Boolchand et al Ann Intern Med; 2006; 145:654-9).
