Abstract

Background The impact of not referring sub-centimetre polyps identified at CT colonography upon the efficacy of colorectal cancer screening remains uncertain. Aim To determine the distribution of advanced neoplasia according to polyp size in a screening setting. Methods Published studies reporting the distribution of advanced adenomas in asymptomatic screening cohorts according to polyp size were identified by MEDLINE and EMBASE searches. Predefined outputs were the screening rates of advanced adenomas represented by diminutive (≦5 mm), small (6-9 mm), sub-centimetre (
