Slide 14Adenoma Miss Rates in Tandem Colonoscopies

SLIDE 14 NOTE: Is it possible that cancers were missed in the NPS? Some relatively small studies have examined back-to-back colonoscopies. They have shown that the miss rate is inversely related to the size of the tumor. For advanced adenomas, the miss rate is small, so it is unlikely that the clinicians in the NPS missed a high number of tumors.
