    Removal of colorectal neoplastic polyps can reduce the incidence of colorectal cancers. It is important to distinguish neoplastic from nonneoplastic polyps. We compared the ability of a trainee and an experienced endoscopist in distinguishing between neoplastic polyps and nonneoplastic polyps by...
