Abstract

Narrow-band imaging (NBI) might improve the detection of Barrett esophagus and its associated neoplasia. A randomized controlled trial suggests that NBI with targeted biopsies can yield the same detection rate for Barrett esophagus with fewer biopsies compared with standard high-definition white light endoscopy with random biopsies.
