This webcast originally aired as a live webinar on February 12, 2013. Dr. Callum Fraser describes new colorectal cancer screening guidelines that encourage clinicians to abandon the use of traditional guaiac fecal occult blood tests and use hewer tests, particularly high sensitivity fecal immunochemical tests for hemoglobin. Dr. Fraser also discusses the role fecal tests have in screening for colorectal neoplasia; the advantages of using the newer fecal immunochemical tests for hemoglobin; the importance of automated quantitation of fecal hemoglobin concentration in screening programs and for individuals; and why there may be other potentially useful fecal tests in the future.
