Overview

Colonoscopic spectroscopy and narrow-band imaging (NBI) may be helpful in the diagnosis of colon polyps.

Other Imaging Findings

  • Colonoscopic spectroscopy may be helpful in the diagnosis of colon polyps.[1]
    • Colonoscopic spectroscopy is a near-infrared autofluorescence (NIR AF) experimental method that is performed as an adjunct to diagnosis of colon lesions. 
    • It had 80% sensitivity and 90% specificity. 
  • Narrow-band imaging (NBI) may be helpful in the diagnosis of colon polyps.[2]
    • NBI is an endoscopic optical image enhancement technology based on light penetration.
    • It is one of the evaluated colonoscopy modality for diagnosis of adenoma.
