Adenoma Detection Rate
Potentially cancerous polyps are known as adenomas. The best method to detect and prevent colorectal cancer is a colonoscopy. During a colonoscopy, a skilled gastroenterologist examines the colon to identify and remove adenomas.
What’s Adenoma Detection Rate?
ADR, or Adenoma Detection Rate, is the percentage of patients whose cancerous polyps were successfully identified and removed by the physician during a colonoscopy. This measurement is an indicator of the physician’s skill at detecting and removing adenomas. The national average is 25%, however, the gastroenterologists of Adult Gastroenterology Associates exceed this benchmark, achieving an ADR rate of just over 43%.
