Serrated polyps - one or two distinct syndromes?
Can you tell histologically?
How does the Serrated Polyposis Syndrome fit ?
What matters the most when deciding on the significance of a serrated polyp?
Dysplasia inside a serrated polyp? - Well it's complicated !
The heterogeneity of serrated lesions is also problematic
Could AI help the Pathologist in the future?
How can we identify patients with serrated polyposis syndrome ?
Can we explain finding both serrated and adenomatous polyps in serrate polyposis syndrome?
