Narrow-band imaging vs. high definition white light for optical diagnosis of small colorectal polyps: a randomized multicenter trial  (FREE ACCESS)

Peter Klare, Bernhard Haller, Sandra Wormbt et al.

Multicenter randomized controlled trial comparing narrow-band imaging (NBI) and high definition white light (HDWL) endoscopy in the optical diagnosis of small (<10mm) neoplastic vs. non-neoplastic colorectal polyps. No significant differences were found in diagnostic accuracy (73.7% and 79.2 %, respectively), although the proportion of polyps assessed with high confidence was significantly lower with NBI than with HDWL (73.7% and 82.6 %, respectively). As the quality of optical diagnoses differed significantly between the participating centers, it remains to be established whether the optical diagnosis method can be applied in a routine clinical setting erience. Benchmarks for quality of optical diagnosis can be achieved with only minimal training.
