Positive results with Cologuard led to greater
to follow-up colonoscopy than FIT1,2

In separate studies investigating adherence to colonoscopy following positive stool-based test results:

Nearly twice as many patients were adherent to follow-up colonoscopy within 6 months after Cologuard screening compared with FIT (85% vs 46%, respectively)1,2
Time to follow-up colonoscopy was shorter for patients initially screened with Cologuard compared with FIT (86 vs 127 days, respectively)2

Offering Cologuard to patients at average risk may
help identify and prioritize patients at higher risk of
precancer or CRC to complete a colonoscopy3,4

Greater Cologuard adherence
may have been supported by its patient
navigation program and automated
reminders to providers to order
colonoscopies following positive results.2

Higher quality colonoscopies following positive results3,5

In a comparative analysis study, patients at average risk for CRC who had a positive Cologuard result were more likely to have more histologically advanced findings during follow-up colonoscopy than patients who underwent colonoscopy only3

A separate study demonstrated that a positive Cologuard result produced5:

Improved follow-up
colonoscopy detection of
precancer and polyps in both
diagnostic yield and quality
Extended endoscopic withdrawal
times, suggesting that
knowledge of a positive result
enhanced quality of inspection

Using Cologuard can help prioritize patients for follow-up colonoscopy and
enhance the quality of detection for early-stage CRC and precancer.3,5
