Abstract

Can We Ease the Financial Burden of Colonoscopy? Using Real-Time Endoscopic Assessment of Polyp Histology to Predict Surveillance Intervals

Our recently accepted paper delves into the topic of real time endoscopic assessment of polyp histology [1]. The importance of such a topic cannot be underestimated given that Australia has one of the highest rates of colonoscopy per capita, despite this colon cancer is still the second most commonly diagnosed malignancy in our population [2-4]. The majority of polyps diagnosed at endoscopy are diminutive and the risk of advanced features being very low (0.5%) however the cost of resection and histological assessment is substantial [3,5].
