Computer-aided detection, mucosal exposure device, their combination, and standard colonoscopy for adenoma detection: a randomized controlled trial

Post written by Satimai Aniwan, MD, from the Division of Gastroenterology, Faculty of Medicine, Chulalongkorn University, and King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Thai Red Cross Society, Bangkok, Thailand.


This study aimed to compare adenoma detection rate (ADR) differences among computer-aided detection (CADe), endocuff-assisted colonoscopy (EAC; Endocuff Vision ARV 110; Olympus Corporation, Tokyo, Japan), and the combination of CADe and EAC with standard colonoscopy.

We hypothesized that mucosal exposure devices could enhance ADR achieved with CADe by increasing the detection of unexposed polyps hiding behind haustral folds.

Incorporating CADe and EAC resulted in increased adenoma and advanced adenoma detection. Future studies to demonstrate the benefit of interval colorectal cancer reduction are warranted.
