Noninvasive CRC screening options can lead to
better patient outcomes1

The American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) supports CRC screening that includes both noninvasive screening options and colonoscopy to address patient barriers and to improve participation.2

Noninvasive CRC screening may help1:

Rule out CRC in patients
Reserve time-consuming
colonoscopy for patients at higher risk and patients with a positive result from a noninvasive test

In a simulated study, colonoscopies following positive stool-based tests were associated with 3 times higher life-years gained compared with screening colonoscopy3

Closing the screening gap

Estimated time it would take for gastroenterologists (GIs) to screen every eligible patient for CRC with colonoscopy only if noninvasive screening options were not offered4-7*

It is essential to include noninvasive in the screening conversation to screen every eligible patient as soon as possible8

The decrease in colonoscopy procedures caused by the national shortage of GIs, patient-perceived barriers to colonoscopy, as well as the pandemic, all contribute to prevent the screening gap from being closed.7,9,10

Offer noninvasive options to eligible patients from
the start in your CRC screening conversations to
help improve outcomes for patients.
