ROYERO G, Henry. Virtual Chromoendoscopy with I-Scan and its Application for Detection and Characterization of Colon Polyps. Rev Col Gastroenterol [online]. 2017, vol.32, n.1, pp.31-37. ISSN 0120-9957.

The limitations of white light colonoscopy result in missing 6% of advanced neoplasias in 6% and up to 25% of adenomas. This has motivated the development of techniques such as virtual chromoendoscopy including the i-Scan system to detect larger numbers of polyps as a strategy for preventing colon cancer. This review summarizes the current application of this technique for detection and characterization of adenomas. The new system is a possible alternative in our environment to the better known NBI and FICE which are already being used here

Keywords : i-Scan; colonoscopy; polyp.
