Cancer Risk Lower When Docs Are Better at Adenoma Detection

A retrospective study of three large health systems found that the risk for colorectal cancer following a colonoscopy was lower when the colonoscopy was conducted by a physician with higher adenoma detection rates (ADR’s). Adenomas are the usual precursor type polyps that can lead to colon cancer. At the Endoscopy Center of the North Shore,

Hi-Def Colonoscopy for IBD

A recent study in The American Journal of Gastroenterology found high-definition colonoscopy was as effective as dye spraying chromoendoscopy and virtual chromoendoscopy in the detection of neoplastic lesions in patients with inflammatory bowel disease. We use high-definition endoscopy at The Endoscopy Center of the North Shore, as well as Evanston and Glenbrook Hospitals. Read the

Artificial Intelligence Improves Colonoscopy

The use of artificial intelligence can increase the accuracy and sensitivity of adenoma detection during colonoscopy, even for small lesions, a new study shows. The results were discussed by Dr. William Karnes of the University of California at Irvine at the World Congress of Gastroenterology at ACG 2017. Dr. Yuichi Mori of Showa University in
