P1196 Impact of Addition of 45-49-Year-Olds to Screening Colonoscopy on Overall Adenoma Detection Rates Using the GIQuIC Registry
Author Insight from Aasma Shaukat, MD, MPH, FACG, NYU Langone Health
What’s new here and important for clinicians?
We have benchmarks for ADRs for individuals 50 and older but the impact of lowering the screening age on ADR is not known. We used GiQUIC, with over 2 million screening colonoscopies by 814 endoscopists around the US and found We found that ADRs in 45-49 year olds are lower by about 4 percentage points compared to 50-54 year olds and 8percentage points compared to 50-75 year old population.
What do patients need to know?
For patients between 45-49 undergoing screening per the new guidelines can expect similar or slightly lower rates of detection of adenomas
