|Abstract:||Endoscopy is essential for the diagnosis and treatment of cancers derived from the gastrointestinal tract. However, a conventional white-light image has technical limitations in detecting small or superficial lesions. Narrow-band imaging, especially with magnification, allows visualization of microstructure patterns and microvascular patterns on the mucosal surface. These technical breakthroughs enable endoscopists to easily detect small pre-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions and to make a differential diagnosis of these lesions. Appropriate diagnosis with narrow-band imaging contributes to minimally invasive endoscopic resection.|
