Background and Aims: A visual, nonbiopsy technique that could reliably determine the histology of diminutive colorectal polyps could greatly reduce the cost of colon cancer screening. This study was designed to report our experience using a high-resolution colonoscope combined with indigo carmine dye to diagnose diminutive colorectal polyps. Methods: Colonoscopy using a Fujinon EC-400 HM/HL was performed in 36 patients with polyps
