"Combined versus single use 20G fine needle biopsy and 25G fine-needle aspiration for endoscopic ultrasound-guided tissue sampling of solid gastrointestinal lesions"

by Priscilla A. van Riet et al.

Fig. 2 Endoscopic ultrasound images of hypodense lesions of the pancreatic head. a Lesion, 4 cm in size, irregular borders, and in close proximity to the superior mesenteric artery, sampled with the 20G fine-needle biopsy needle. b Lesion, 2 cm in size, irregular borders, sampled with the 25G fine-needle aspiration needle.

"Predictive rules for optical diagnosis of <10-mm colorectal polyps based on a dedicated software"

by Cesare Hassan et al.

Fig. 4 Endoscopic views showing: a an adenomatous polyp; b a hyperplastic polyp. Both types present with a homogeneous appearance of round (non-dark) pits and pericryptal vessels. As these descriptors were shared by the two different histological categories, new definitions for pericryptal vessels that were distinct for each of the two polyp types were provided.
