Abstract

Magnification endoscopy in conjunction with chromoendoscopy provides additional valuable and detailed information with respect to mucosal morphology. The most promising indications include the depiction and staging of squamous cell cancer of the esophagus, the potential to identify neoplasia within Barrett's esophagus, and the demarcation of early gastric cancer. However, the exact role of magnification endoscopy for routine clinical practice is not yet determined and is currently under investigation.
