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
