A new study shows a correlation between colonoscopy quality and the time of procedure.

What Is It: A recent study has shown a relationship between colonoscopy quality and the time of day in which the procedure was performed.

Where Was the Study Conducted: The trial for the colonoscopy study was conducted at Renmin Hospital of Wuhan University in Wuhan, China between June 2019 and October 2020.

What Did the Results Show: Results showed that procedures performed earlier in the day (Prior to 1 p.m.) led to higher adenoma detection rates (13.73%) in comparison to later in the day (7.3%).

Why Is This Important: With a lower adenoma detection rate in later procedures, physicians should take steps to ensure they remain diligent throughout the day, providing extra attention to compensate for fatigue later in the day.
