Abstract

Endoscopic imaging techniques aim for detection of small and even minute neoplasias and analysis of macroscopic type, microsurface, and capillary architecture. Magnifying image-enhanced endoscopy displays surface and capillary architecture of normal and neoplastic mucosa and allows highly accurate endoscopic diagnosis of margins, malignant transformation, and likelihood of deep submucosal invasion of early mucosal neoplasias, which is fundamental for curative endoscopic resection. We provide an introduction to techniques of image-enhanced endoscopy and diagnostic analysis of endoscopic observations.
