AbstractBACKGROUND & AIMS: We compared the accuracy of a qualitative fecal immunochemical test (FIT) in identifying patients with proximal vs distal advanced neoplasia and evaluated whether analysis of 2 specimens performed better than analysis of 1 specimen. Distal advanced neoplasia was defined as colorectal cancer (CRC), any colorectal adenoma >= 10 mm in diameter, high-grade dysplasia, or a lesion with villous or tubulovillous histologic characteristics in a location distal to the splenic flexure, including the descending colon, the rectosigmoid, and the rectum.
