Beyond standard image-enhanced endoscopy confocal endomicroscopy

  • • Endomicroscopy is a new imaging tool for gastrointestinal endoscopy. • Panchromoendoscopy with targeted biopsies has become the method of choice for surveillance of patients with inflammatory bowel disease. • Endomicroscopy can be added after chromoendoscopy to clarify whether standard biopsies are still needed. • This smart biopsy concept can increase the diagnostic yield of intraepithelial neoplasia and substantially reduce the need for biopsies. • Endomicroscopy is still mainly used for research but clinical acceptance is increasing because of a multitude of positive studies about the diagnostic value of endomicroscopy.
