|Colonic Polyp||Procedure: Position change Procedure: Standard|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||776 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||Position Changes During Colonoscope Withdrawal to Increase Polyp Detection: a Prospective Randomized Trial|
|Study Start Date :||July 2011|
|Primary Completion Date :||July 2012|
|Study Completion Date :||December 2013|
Placebo Comparator: Control
Subject will undergo standard colonoscopy.
Subjects will undergo standard colonoscopy without position changes during scope withdrawal.
Active Comparator: Position change
Subject will under go standard colonoscopy, but also with position changes during colonoscope withdrawal.
Procedure: Position change
Patients will be randomly assigned to two groups: Control group (those who will receive standard colonoscopy without position changes) and Position change group (those who will undergo position changes during colonoscope withdrawal during colonoscopy). Subjects in position change group will be asked to shift into three different positions during colonoscope withdrawal.
- Polyp detection rate [ Time Frame: 6 minutes ]
