The article reports on a study concerning narrow-band imaging (NBI) versus conventional high-resolution imaging for colorectal adenoma detection. It includes the use of wide-angle colonoscopes during instrument withdrawal for both the NBI and conventional groups. The study shows an increase adenoma detection rate fir NBI colonoscopy, however result shows no statistic significance.

    Background: Experts have stated that adenoma detection rates (ADR) of individual endoscopists should be measured to assess colonoscopy quality. Aim: The purpose of this study was to quantify the reliability of the ADR as a quality marker. Methods: We simulated a population of endoscopists and...
