Abstract

Background: Visual, non-biopsy techniques for predicting histology of diminutive colorectal polyps have not proven reliable. We recently reported our initial experience using a high resolution colonoscope (HRC). the Fujinon EC-400 HM/HL. in combination w/indigo carmine dye (ICD) for the diagnosis of small polyps. The sensitivity and specificity of our technique in distinguishing adenomatous from non-adenomatous polyps was 93% and 95%. respectively. Clinical application of this technique was limited by the cost of the HRC and accompanying video processor ($55K). We now report on our more recent experience utilizing a less expensive 2nd generation HRC (cost of scope/video processor = $25K). Methods: Complete colonoscopy using the Fujinon EC-200LR was performed in patients w/polyps. All polyps
