Abstract

Chromoendoscopy and magnification endoscopy are 2 endoscopic techniques used to improve visualization and diagnosis of gastrointestinal mucosa. This article summarizes the principles behind magnification endoscopy, with and without chromoendoscopy, for the diagnosis of Barrett's esophagus, dysplasia, and adenocarcinoma.
