This area reports our performance in the prevention or screening for colorectal cancer.  Colorectal cancer can be prevented by removing pre-cancerous polyps detected with colonoscopy performed at 10 year intervals or sigmoidoscopy performed at 5 year intervals.  Silent colorectal cancers can be found by annually looking for hidden (occult) blood in stool specimens.

“Screenings” reflects the percentage of patients, ages 50 to 75, who have undergone a colonoscopy in the last 10 years or a sigmoidoscopy in the last 5 years or a fecal (stool) occult blood test in the last year.
