A 2017 study from the Polish screening colonoscopy program showed that when doctors improved their adenoma detection rate (ADR), their patients lowered their risk of interval colorectal cancer after colonoscopy. The current study was performed at a single center in the U.S., where in 2010, a quality program was instituted that involved increasing use of split-dose bowel preparation, withdrawal time measurement, ADR measurement, report cards, and educational and corrective sessions.
