|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Adenoma Colon Polyps Colon Cancer||Device: Cap - Transparent retractable extension device. Device: Standard|
The investigators hypothesize that adenoma detection rate will be higher using cap assisted colonoscopy compared to standard colonoscopy. Also, cap assisted colonoscopy will be safe and cecal intubation rate will be similar compared to standard colonoscopy.
Specific Aim 1 - To compare the prevalence of adenomas detected by standard colonoscopy and cap assisted colonoscopy.
Specific Aim 2 - To compare the number of adenomas detected per subject by standard colonoscopy and cap assisted colonoscopy.
Specific aim 3 - To compare the cecal intubation rate, insertion time, withdrawal time and complications of standard colonoscopy and cap assisted colonoscopy.

- The primary outcome is the prevalence of adenomas in the two groups. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
- The secondary outcomes are the number of adenomas detected per subject, cecal intubation rate, insertion times, withdrawal times and complication rates in the two arms. [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
