Abstract

Endoscopy is an essential tool for effective care of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn disease and ulcerative colitis. The newest endoscopic small-field imaging technologies with confocal endomicroscopy have allowed real-time imaging of gastrointestinal mucosal during ongoing endoscopic evaluation and in vivo histology. Thus, endomicroscopy has a potential to further enhance the endoscopic evaluation of IBD. Advances in molecular in vivo imaging in IBD may be used not only to better understand the pathophysiology of IBD but also to guide optimized therapy and thus to allow a personalized, new approach to the IBD management.
