abstract

  • Ninety colorectal polyps seen on double contrast barium enema were reviewed and note was made of surface and base characteristics, size, site and the presence of associated disease. Results were then correlated with the histology. The radiological characteristics of each histological type of polyp encountered are described. Because of the variation in radiological appearance of each histological type and similarities in appearance between these types, we conclude that radiology cannot accurately predict the histology of a colorectal polyp.
