Figure 1 Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) images (12 MHz) of large rectal adenomas with visible blood vessels. a Sessile polyp, 40 mm in diameter (arrows). A tortuous vessel (open arrow), 4 mm in diameter, penetrates the bowel wall and bifurcates in the polyp. b Sessile polyp, 35 mm in diameter (arrows). A cross-section of a branching vessel (open arrow) located at the polyp base is seen as a group of round/oval echo-free spaces, each 2 - 3 mm in diameter.
