Gastroenterology Podcast August 2014: Factors That Could Affect Colorectal Cancer Screening Strategies
A study in the August issue of Gastroenterology found little benefit to repeat colonoscopies within ten years of screening where no polyps were originally found. A related study by the same group found that age, sex, race, and ethnicity affect prevalence and location of large polyps and tumors in average-risk individuals. Dr. Kuemmerle speaks with the first author of both articles, Dr. David A. Lieberman of Oregon Health & Science University; Plus, a rundown of top stories from this month's issue of GI and Hepatology News.
