Table 1 Demographic statistics of respondents with a surveillance preference using a hypothetical scenario of being at intermediate risk for CRC (n = 490)

From: Using a hypothetical scenario to assess public preferences for colorectal surveillance following screening-detected, intermediate-risk adenomas: annual home-based stool test vs. triennial colonoscopy
