Who is a good candidate for multitarget stool DNA testing and what do you do when it’s positive but the colonoscopy is discordant? Do you have a surveillance plan for your patients with ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel disease? What are the current screening recommendations for the general public versus patients with a family history? Dr. John Kisiel discusses these recommendations and the evidence behind them. He shares tips on managing patients on anticoagulant therapy going for polypectomy and when to stop screening in the elderly.
