During standard colonoscopy a substantial number of colorectal polyps may be missed. Previous studies have found a 12-28% of miss rate for all polyps, a 31% for hyperplastic polyps and 6-27% for adenomas. In this study it is tested whether a retro viewing endoscope can detect more colorectal polyps in comparisson to standard forward viewing endoscopy. Further, ppolyps detected, mean adenomas per Patient and withdrawal time are recorded.

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most common cancer and the fourth leading cause of cancer death in Korea. Colonoscopy with polypectomy decreases the incidence and mortality from colo...
Linked color imaging (LCI) is newly developed image-enhancing endoscopy technology that differentiates the red color spectrum more effectively than white light imaging thanks to its optima...
Cap assisted colonoscopy, a simple technique of fixing a transparent plastic cap to the tip of the colonoscope, was proven to increase the adenoma detection rate during screening colonosco...
The Same-day bidirectional endoscopy (BDE) is commonly used in clinical practice. However, the optimal sequence of performing a same-day BDE has not been well-established.The primary aims ...
Colonoscopy outcome is strictly related to the adenoma detection rate (ADR). An endoscopy withdrawal time >6min has been suggested to increase the ADR since it allows for thorough evaluati...
Traditional serrated adenoma (TSA) is rare and known to have a malignant potential. We aimed to investigate the prevalence and risk factors of TSA and compare the characteristics of synchronous conven...
Adenoma detection rate (ADR), the proportion of an endoscopist's screening colonoscopies in which at least one adenoma is found, is an established quality metric. Several publications have suggeste...
The adenoma detection rate (ADR) is the most important marker of colonoscopy quality. Devices to improve adenoma detection have been developed, such as the Endocuff and transparent cap. The aim o...
Endocytoscopy, a next-generation endoscopic system, facilitates observation at a maximum magnification of ×520. To our knowledge, no study has reported high-precision diagnosis of colorectal low-grad...
BACKGROUND Pleomorphic adenoma of the salivary gland is a common benign tumor of the parotid gland. However, pleomorphic adenoma arising in the minor salivary glands, including the nasopharynx, is unc...
Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.
A pituitary adenoma which secretes ADRENOCORTICOTROPIN, leading to CUSHING DISEASE.
Visualization of the heart structure and cardiac blood flow for diagnostic evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including ENDOSCOPY (cardiac endoscopy, sometimes refered to as cardioscopy), RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; TOMOGRAPHY; or ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
An adenoma of the large intestine. It is usually a solitary, sessile, often large, tumor of colonic mucosa composed of mucinous epithelium covering delicate vascular projections. Hypersecretion and malignant changes occur frequently. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Neoplasms which arise from or metastasize to the PITUITARY GLAND. The majority of pituitary neoplasms are adenomas, which are divided into non-secreting and secreting forms. Hormone producing forms are further classified by the type of hormone they secrete. Pituitary adenomas may also be characterized by their staining properties (see ADENOMA, BASOPHIL; ADENOMA, ACIDOPHIL; and ADENOMA, CHROMOPHOBE). Pituitary tumors may compress adjacent structures, including the HYPOTHALAMUS, several CRANIAL NERVES, and the OPTIC CHIASM. Chiasmal compression may result in bitemporal HEMIANOPSIA.
