The Adenoma Detection Rate (ADR) has been widely accepted by expert groups as an important colonoscopy quality measure for endoscopy facilities and professionals. ADR is defined as “the rate at which a physician finds one or more precancerous polyps during a normal screening colonoscopy procedure for patients over 50 years old.”


The American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) has determined that the minimal benchmark rate for a physicians' ADR is 30% for males and 20% for females with an overall average of 25%.

Gastroenterology of the Rockies physicians exceed the minimum professional Adenoma Detection Rate by averaging 53.55% for males and 38.04% for females. This is a total average of 183% greater than the minimum standard.
