Screening for Colorectal Cancer
0.54 CME CREDIT

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer among men and women. The incidence is declining in large part due to increased screening, and the detection and removal of pre-cancerous polyps. This talk will discuss screening for CRC and polyps, including advantages and limitations of each option. The audience will hear about surveillance intervals based on findings at the index examination. Colonoscopy, the gold standard for screening, will be discussed along with potential reasons for missed polyps/interval cancers and quality indicators for colonoscopy. It is also important to explore and describe newer screening methods, including stool DNA testing and colon capsule screening.
