Colorectal cancer (CRC) is a leading cause of cancer related death in the western countries. It remains an important health problem, often under-diagnosed. The symptoms can appear very late and about 25% of the patients are diagnosed at metastatic stage. Familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) is an inherited colorectal cancer syndrome, characterized by the early onset of hundred to thousands of adenomatous polyps in the colon and rectum. Left untreated, there is a nearly 100% cumulative risk of progression to CRC by the age of 35-40 years, as well as an increased risk of various other malignancies. CRC can be prevented by the identification of the high risk population and by the timely implementation of rigid screening programs which will lead to special medico-surgical interventions. [less ▲]

Barrett's oesophagus (BE) is a segment of columnar lined epithelium in the distal oesophagus, above the gastrooesophageal junction. So it is important to localize this junction endoscopically; the proximal margin of the gastric folds is the anatomic landmark. Another important feature of BE is the specialized intestinal metaplasia. In the aetiology of this condition, acid reflux is a primary event but there is evidence that other factors are causal. As BE is a well known premalignant condition, detection of dysplastic epithelium and its severity is the crucial element. Practical guidelines are presented for endoscopic surveillance program. The purpose is the early detection of high grade dysplasia and carcinoma to advise oesophagectomy or endoscopic ablation therapy for patients unfit to undergo surgery. [less ▲]

In our institution, MRCP is actually replacing diagnostic ERCP. This study is addressing its accuracy in the diagnosis of symptomatic choledocholithiasis. 137 MRCP were performed in patients with upper abdominal pain and biological anomalies (n = 48), pain with cholelithiasis at sonography (n = 69) or non-alcoholic acute pancreatitis (n = 20) on a 1.5 T system with high gradients using a standardized combination of breath-hold HASTE and RARE sequences. We included in our study 74 patients who underwent as second test ERCP (n = 36), peroperative cholangiography (n = 13), or extensive follow-up with laboratory tests and/or sonography (n = 25). All examinations were judged as diagnostic, discrepancies between direct cholangiography and MRCP being noted in 4 patients (5.4%). Lithiasis was misinterpreted on MRCP as bubbles in 2 patients after sphincterotomy or surgery. We had two false positive diagnoses on MRCP: in one patient peroperative cholangiography was negative and in the other one ERCP was negative. With a sensitivity and PPV of 92%, a specificity and NPV of 96% MRCP in our experience is shown as an accurate diagnostic tool for the detection of stone in the common bile duct replacing ERCP.
