BestFIT Study

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill


Description

In this study, we are comparing five different fecal immunochemical tests (FITs) to determine how they compare with a doctor's findings during a routine colonoscopy. The FIT is a test that determines if there is hidden blood in the stool and is an alternative to colonoscopy for colorectal cancer screening when done annually.
