Figure 1
Figure 1 Study protocol. Prediction of residual adenoma/hyperplastic tissue by the endoscopist with a level of confidence: Positive or: Negative. WLE: White light endoscopy; NBI: Narrow band imaging.
Figure 2
Figure 2 Flow diagram of study selection. WLE: White light endoscopy; NBI: Narrow band imaging; EPMR: Endoscopic piecemeal mucosal resection; CRC: Colorectal cancer.
Figure 3
Figure 3 Receiver operating characteristic curve. Global assessment of white light endoscopy (WLE) and narrow band imaging (NBI) is drawn for each group. A: WLE-NBI; B: NBI-WLE. The cut-off of the best area under the operating characteristic curve (ROC) curve is the true positive rate (sensitivity) plotted to the false positive rate (1.0-specificity). The closer the ROC curve to the upper left corner, the higher the accuracy of the test.

Figure 4 Examples of endoscopic mucosal scar with white light endoscopy and narrow band imaging (above and below and from left to right). A: Normal scar; B: Clear residual tissue of a surprisingly sessile serrated polyp/adenoma with no dysplasia on either the scar or endoscopic piecemeal mucosal resection; C: Apparent normal tissue with low-grade dysplasia at histology; D: Small residual tissue with low-grade dysplasia surrounding a clip (a clip artifact).
