1All discordant cases in which histopathology were rated as atrophy and narrow band imaging (NBI) findings were rated as normal were cases of partial villous atrophy (i.e., not complete villous atrophy); there were no cases of histopathologically-proven complete villous atrophy which were rated as normal by NBI.
Table 3 Performance characteristics of narrow band imaging for distinguishing between normal mucosa and villous atrophy (partial or complete) as compared to histopathology
1The fair agreement between advanced endoscopist and gastroenterological (GI) fellow appeared to be driven by the relatively frequent designation of atrophy by the GI fellow and the more conservative scoring by the advanced endoscopist, as supported by their respective negative and positive predictive values.
