BACKGROUND The 2 main types of colon polyps are adenomas and hyperplastic. Pit patterns on the surface of polyps have been described by using magnification chromoendoscopy, which can help differentiate between polyp types. Narrow band imaging (NBI) is a novel technology that enhances the visualization of surface mucosal and vascular patterns on the polyp surface. Earlier we described, in a pilot study, patterns seen on the polyp surface with NBI that can help differentiate between adenomas and… CONTINUE READING
