Detection and characterisation under difficult conditions (melanosis coli)
Detection of a polyp in a poorly distended spastic colon with fluid residues
Colonoscopy has the potential to decrease colorectal cancer (CRC) mortality by 60%
Detection of a polyp between folds
A 65 years old male was referred for colonoscopy after a positive fecal immunochemical test.
A 36 year-old man was admitted for dysphagia, food impaction and heartburn. About 10 years ago he had clinical signs of frequent gastrooesophageal reflux, but no treatment was applied and contrast X-ray showed no pathological malformation.
Incomplete intestinal metaplasia, with moderate inflammation
A slightly-elevated flat lesion (Paris 0-IIa) was found in the middle of a Barrett’s oesophagus. LCI allowed easier detection of the lesion which consisted in several nodules with an irregular vascular pattern. The final histology was high-grade dysplasia with p53 overexpression.
