Results and discussion

The main factors that influence the quality of screening colonoscopy were identified: experience in colonoscopy, theoretical training, participation in the screening program, and number of annual colonoscopies. The calculated odds ratio for the selected dependent variable is calculated.

Conclusions

The experience for more than 5 years (p = 0.017) and at least 200 colonoscopies per year (p = 0.004) are the main factors that allow to perform complete colonoscopy in 90% or more of cases.
