Abstract

Colonoscopy is the cornerstone of colorectal cancer screening programs. There is significant variability in the quality of colonoscopy between endoscopists. Colonoscopy quality assessment tracks various metrics to improve the effectiveness of colonoscopy, aiming at reducing the incidence and mortality from colorectal cancer. Adenoma detection rate is the prime metric, because it is associated with the risk of interval cancer. Implementing processes to measure and improve the adenoma detection rate is essential to improve the quality of colonoscopy.
