Table 1 Evaluation of the lesion detection rate by the CE trainees for each FICE setting

From: Capsule endoscopy with flexible spectral imaging color enhancement reduces the bile pigment effect and improves the detectability of small bowel lesions

  Lesions detected by the CE experts (%) Conventional Setting 1 Setting 2 Setting 3
Angioectasia 60 (100) 26 (43.3) 40 (66.7)* 38 (63.3)* 31 (51.7)
Erosion/ulceration 82 (100) 38 (46.3) 62 (75.6) 60 (73.2) 20 (24.4)
  1. *Comparison of conventional CE with FICE settings 1 and 2 by the chi-squared test (P = 0.0017 and P = 0.014, respectively).
  2. Comparison of conventional CE with FICE settings 1 and 2 by the chi-squared test (P = 0.0012 and P = 0.0094, respectively).
  3. Comparison of conventional CE with FICE setting 3 by the chi-squared test (P = 0.015).
