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.

    Abstract: Variation in the detection of both adenomas and cancers at colonoscopy is well established, and adenoma detection is a valid indicator of the quality of colonoscopy. A study reported in this issue demonstrated variable detection of serrated lesions among endoscopists. It is possible...
