Abstract

Chromoendoscopy techniques improve the visualization of mucosal structures. This article reviews and summarizes key studies addressing the impact of chromoendoscopy on colonic neoplasia detection and differentiation of neoplastic from non-neoplastic polyps in average and high-risk populations, including patients with colonic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In this context, there are convincing data that chromoendoscopy differentiates neoplastic from non-neoplastic polyps in average-risk populations with high accuracy. Moreover, dye-based chromoendoscopy improves neoplasia detection in colonic IBD surveillance.
