Adenoma Detection Rate
An adenoma is a benign (non-cancerous) tumor of glandular origin. Adenomas can grow from many organs including the colon. Although these growths are benign, over time they can potentially progress to become malignant (cancerous), at which point they are called adenocarcinomas. Even while benign, they have the potential to cause serious health complications by compressing other structures and by producing large amounts of unregulated hormones.
Why Do You Need a Colonoscopy Screening
The goals of a screening colonoscopy are to prevent colorectal cancer by identifying and removing adenomas and to identify colon or rectal (referred to as colorectal) cancer if it is already present. The most important quality indicator, the Adenoma Detection Rate is the proportion of average-risk patients in whom a physician identifies adenomas during colonoscopy.
Early screening can detect Adenoma and other growths before theybecome malignant.
Digestive Care Physicians, LLC has proven success in identifying these adenomas as shown in the chart above.
