Our Diagnosis

  • Sessile Serrated Adenoma

The Miraca Difference

  • Recognizing that many bland polyps previously thought to be hyperplastic polyps are actually pre-malignant lesions
  • Understanding the difference between:
    • Large hyperplastic polyps
    • Traumatized hyperplastic polyps
    • Mixed hyperplastic-adenomatous polyps
    • ‘Traditional’ serrated adenomas
    • Sessile serrated adenomas
    • Sessile serrated adenomas with dysplasia or carcinoma
  • Seeing more than 2,000 biopsies per day, with 26 expert GI pathologists convening daily to discern subtle cases maximizes the specificity of diagnoses
    • Including newly identified lesions, such as sessile serrated adenomas, that may explain so-called interval cancers
