SLIDE 12 NOTES: We conclude that somewhere between 55 and 64 percent of Medicare beneficiaries who undergo a polypectomy have at least one subsequent colonoscopy in the 5 year surveillance window.
Diagnostic and therapeutic follow-up following a sigmoidoscopy is frequent, and a large majority of those how underwent polypectomy within six months of the sigmoidoscopy had their polyps removed in subsequent procedures.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
