Abstract

Background: In vivo prediction of colorectal polyp histology by narrow-band imaging (NBI) could potentially avoid post-polypectomy histologic examination or resection of diminutive lesions, thereby reducing costs and risk. Objective: To assess whether NBI is able to predict colonoscopy surveillance intervals and histology of distal diminutive polyps according to American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) criteria. Design: Prospective, multicenter study. Setting: Five endoscopic centers. Patients: Consecutive patients undergoing colonoscopy in 5 centers were included. Intervention: Participating endoscopists were required to pass a before-study qualifying examination. Histology of polyps that were
