Predictions relevant for exploring color transparency in (p,2p) nuclear reactions are often made by using simplified treatments of nuclear dynamics. We examine the extent to which the earlier predictions are valid by carrying out calculations using an improved treatment of the proton scattering wave functions, nucleon Fermi motion, and the effects of long- and short-range nuclear correlations. The consequences of two existing models of color transparency are also presented.
