Abstract
Discussion of the guaiac based test introduced in 1971 and its' shortcomings versus Fecal Immunochemical Testing (FIT) and how it relates to acute and non-acute facilities. Why is FIT the preferred test? What is Colorectal Cancer and why do I care about it? How important is awareness and detection? Why is screening important and how is it done? Recommended screening tests and other tests available History of guaiac-based cards and specific prep DRE Warning ACG recommendation from 2008 FIT Advantages Other countries Usage stats Side - by - Side comparison, guaiac vs. FIT Comparison of various FIT and discussion regarding cutoff levels Summary: CRC Is the 2nd leading killer in Cancers The ACG recommends ABANDONING older gFOBT DRE is NOT an acceptable form of CRC screening, even when used with a guaiac-based card. FIT has higher patient compliance rate FIT may generate significant revenue to your practice The GOLD STANDARD is whichever recommended test you can actually get the patient to complete.
