  Purpose

Hypothesis-- Nurse observation in addition to the colonoscopist while withdrawing the colonoscope from the cecum leads to a greater adenoma detection rate.

Methods- Patients presenting for screening colonoscopy are randomized to nurse observation or usual practice. Risk factors for adenoma development and the adenoma detection rate in each group will be evaluated.


Condition Intervention
