BACKGROUND Discriminating neoplastic from non-neoplastic polyps can significantly reduce the cost of colonoscopy. The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) recently set threshold levels for optical diagnostic accuracy to be acceptable for clinical use. OBJECTIVE In this study, we compare a novel colonoscope capable of dual-focus imaging with standard colonoscopy with respect to the ASGE guidelines. SETTING An academic medical center ambulatory surgical center. PATIENTS… CONTINUE READING
