We read with interest the report by Wong et al.1 of the Detecting Bowel Cancer in CKD (DETECT) study of colorectal cancer screening in 1706 patients with CKD. DETECT investigated the test performance characteristics of fecal immunochemical testing (FIT) to detect advanced colorectal neoplasia. The authors reported a high sensitivity (90%) and negative predictive value (99%), with a positivity rate of 22%.
