Registry data show a lower incidence of postcolonoscopy colorectal cancer (PCCRC) among endoscopists with higher sessile serrated lesion detection rates (SSLDR), validating the SSLDR as a clinically relevant quality measure.
- An analysis of the association between PCCRC and SSLDR was conducted using data from the New Hampshire Colonoscopy Registry.
- The cohort included patients who had either a colonoscopy or a diagnosis of CRC.
- The outcome was PCCRC (ie, CRC diagnosed ≥ 6 months after index colonoscopy).
- The exposure of interest was endoscopist-specific SSLDR.
