The Boston Bowel Preparation Scale

The Boston Bowel Preparation Scale (BBPS; pronounced “bee-bops”) was developed by investigators in the Gastroenterology section to provide a standardized method for rating the quality of bowel preparation during colonoscopy. The scale is valid and demonstrates good inter- and intra-rater reliability (Gastrointestinal Endoscopy 2009;69:620-5).
