Adenoma Detection Rate
This measures your doctor’s ability to identify precancerous polyps and remove them before they have the chance to turn into cancer. This is the primary goal of colonoscopy for the purpose of colon cancer screening.
All of the national and international societies have established that a minimum of 6 minutes should be spent removing the scope once the instrument has been passed to the beginning of the colon. For a visual reference please see animated colonoscopy on our site!
Dr. Foulks is proud to inform you that he exceeds current standards of care in the detection of precancerous polyps and scope withdrawal times.
Adenoma Detection Rate: 33.6% (National Average 23.5%)
Withdrawal Time: 8.5 min (Recommended – 6min)
