Abstract

LEBS has shown great promise as a tool for detecting the field effect of carcinogenesis. We have evaluated this method as a tool for cancer screening in 219 rectal biopsy patients and 86 duodenal biopsy patients and present several LEBS parameters that are diagnostic for the presence of neoplasia.
