Paper Abstract

110 patients were subjected to colonscopy under white light and autofluorescence. An adapted Xillix LIFE system and xenon light source with interference filter were used in the autofluorescence diagnostics. Both techniques revealed 67 small lesions, including 45 neoplastic ones and 22 others in the examined patients. The autofluorescence examination revealed 43 neoplastic changes, while conventional white-light colonscopy allowed for localization of 39 neoplastic lesions. Autofluorescent imaging of large intestine mucosa is more sensitive in the detection of small neoplastic changes than traditional colonscopy.
