Gastrointestinal Specialists Available to Comment on Role of Screening Colonoscopy in Reducing Colorectal Cancer Mortality

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today's news from the CDC and American Cancer Society highlighting the overall decline in cancer deaths in the United States includes heartening news of declining mortality from colorectal cancer. Many of the nation's leading gastrointestinal specialists are convening in Philadelphia for the Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG.) Physician experts on screening colonoscopy and the prevention of colorectal cancer are available to comment on this new data.

"These findings highlight the favorable impact of increased utilization of colonoscopy by private insurers following Medicare's lead in providing coverage to patients for diagnostic screening in average risk patients," according to ACG President, David A. Johnson, M.D., FACG.

According to ACG screening colonoscopy is one of the most power preventive tools in clinical medicine because of its excellent sensitivity in detecting polyps and its potential for removing them and breaking the sequence of polyp to cancer in a single diagnostic and therapeutic intervention. Colorectal cancer screening recommendations are available at the ACG Web site http://www.acg.gi.org/patients/ccrk/index.asp.
