BACKGROUND There are few data about the performance variability among endoscopists participating to nationwide or regionwide colorectal cancer screening programs. OBJECTIVE To assess the variability of neoplasia detection rates among endoscopists participating in a regional colorectal cancer screening program based on colonoscopy after biennial fecal occult blood testing (FOBT). DESIGN Two rounds of colonoscopy were performed: round 1 took place in 2003 and 2004, and round 2 took place in… CONTINUE READING
