The Highest Standards in Quality GI Care

The gastroenterologists of Digestive Health Reno surpass the countrywide benchmarks for quality, as determined by the GI Quality Improvement Consortium (GIQuiC), a non-profit collaboration of the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) and the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) for quality benchmarking in the field of gastroenterology.

These standards include Adenoma Detection Rate (ADR) and Withdrawal Rate. Each is a unit of measure that assesses the physician’s skill to perform a safe and effective colonoscopy for each patient.

What is Adenoma Detection Rate (ADR)?

Adenoma Detection Rate - Digestive Health Reno

A polyp that may become cancerous if left undetected and treated is known as an adenoma. The most effective treatment for reducing colon cancer risk is removing adenomas during a colonoscopy. Adenoma detection rate, or ADR, is a quality indicator that shows the percentage of patients whose cancerous polyps were successfully identified by the physician performing the colonoscopy. The greater the percentage, the more skilled the physician is at identifying and removing cancer-causing polyps.

What is Withdrawal Rate?

Withdrawal Rate - Digestive Health Center - 8.3 Minutes

Withdrawal rate is another quality indicator that measures how long it takes a physician to withdraw the endoscope, the device used to examine the colon during a colonoscopy. This measurement demonstrates the efficiency and thoroughness of examining a colonoscopy. The standard Withdrawal Rate is six minutes. The gastroenterologists of Digestive Health Reno strive to deliver a complete examination while maintaining the highest standards of effectiveness and efficiency. At Digestive Health Reno, the average Withdrawal Rate is 8.3 minutes, exceeding the national benchmark for quality care.
