    Default follow up vs screening

    Would you consider a follow up colonoscopy and/or evaluation the same as a screening colonoscopy if the preoperative diagnosis is a V12.72 or a V10.05?

    I would like some feedback...

    I dont consider them the same. I consider the screening colonoscopy to be the first one they have ever had and the follow up a follow up. (kinda like new vs established)

    my version
