Adenoma Detection Rate: Lowering Colorectal Cancer Risk
The researchers studied 314,872 colonoscopies performed by 136 gastroenterologists. ADRs ranged from 7.4 percent to 52.5 percent. During the follow-up period, 712 interval colorectal adenocarcinomas were identified, 255 of which were advanced-stage cancers.
Each 1 percent increase in ADR was associated with a 3 percent decrease in the risk of colorectal cancer.
