    Purpose: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the major causes of cancer-related deaths in industrialized countries. The identification of small polyps and neoplasms with non-polypoid morphology remains to be a serious challenge, as about a quarter of them are missed during routine colonoscopy. The...
