Abstract

Although AFI may enhance lesion detection or differentiation in the GI tract, the technique currently lacks sufficient specificity to make it useful as a stand-alone diagnostic modality during endoscopic practice. AFI may be a valuable tool when used as part of a multimodal imaging scheme, but this will require further technical advances and validation in prospective, randomized trials.
