Dr. Imperiale’s primary research interests include tailoring screening for colorectal cancer based on individual patient risk, and using quantitative research methods to assess existing and new technologies for digestive diseases.

“We should be moving from an age-based system of screening for colon cancer to one that is risk-based because age is only one factor that contributes to risk.”
