Summary

The National Colorectal Cancer Screening Program in the Czech Republic was introduced in the year 2000. Based on the screening colonoscopy database established in 2006, a precise program evaluation can be performed using internationally respected quality indicators. According to these measures, colonoscopies performed within the screening program have achieved above-average results. The main task for the future is to establish the program on the population level, so the quality can stay at a long-lasting level.
