Colorectal Screening, Diagnostics & Technology

Diagnostics and Technology

Colorectal Cancer:

  • Second largest cause of cancer deaths in the U.S.
  • Third most common cancer in both men and women
  • Takes the lives of about 51,000 people each year

These are some frightening facts but the most concerning statistic is that 23 million Americans are not up to date on their colorectal screenings, even though screenings can prevent 60% of these death tolls.
