Abstract

High-resolution and high-magnification endoscopy, with or without mucosal enhancement techniques, enable detailed visualization of GI mucosa. These new endoscopic systems have the goal of helping to target biopsies or endoscopic resection, but standardization of abnormal mucosal patterns in the GI tract must be established. Further studies are needed to validate their utility in the form of improved clinical outcomes, and the independent value of high-resolution and high magnification features relative to mucosal enhancement techniques needs to be defined.
