Murfreesboro Medical Clinic exceeds benchmark for ADR — Here's how much

Murfreesboro (Tenn.) Medical Clinic's adenoma detection rate for colonoscopies is above the national average, WGNS Radio reported.

Here are the key details to know:

1. A high ADR correlates to a lower risk of colon cancer due to the potential for adenomas to turn malignant.

2. The MMC's gastroenterology department reported an ADR of 41.25 percent in 2017, which is greater than the national average of 20 percent for women and 30 percent for men.

3. "Meeting national quality targets is essential for colon cancer prevention and reduction of cancer mortality," said Cregan Laborde, MD, a gastroenterologist at MMC.
