Low-performing colonoscopists improved adenoma and serrated lesion detection rates when presented with instructional videos and report cards, Gastroenterology & Endoscopy News reports.

Anna Duloy, MD, of University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora, presented the findings at Digestive Disease Week, held May 18-21, 2019, in San Diego. Dr. Duloy and colleagues studied 16 high-volume colonoscopists and recorded at least 28 of their colonoscopies. Researchers then selected seven colonoscopies for evaluation. The colonoscopists were separated into low-performing and high-performing cohorts, and each colonoscopist was presented with a report card grading their skills.

Low-performing colonoscopists improved their ADR from 31.1 percent to 34.3 percent and their SDR from 7.2 percent to 9.1 percent. Both ADR and SDR remained similar for higher-performing colonoscopists.
