The gastrointestinal endoscopy has recently faced surprising technical improvements. The high definition endoscopy combined with digital chromoendoscopic techniques reveal many more visible details of the surface of the digestive system. The detection and categorization of abnormalities found in the mucosa are now facilitated by a clearer and more finely tuned examination of the tissues. The vascular details and the architecture of the digestive system are now highlighted with the use of high definition.
Images in high definition provide a significant improvement in the visibility and the evaluation of even small lesions. Because of this, we can provide better diagnosis and interventions.
With the press of a single button, the endoscope processes the received data providing images that were not attainable before, identifying altered areas with ease.
Digital chromoendoscopy is an imaging technology that improves the diagnostic value of the endoscopy to provide a detailed visualization of the mucosa’s surface. Let’s observe the following examples:
This technology allows us to identify and diagnose smaller lesions, as well as to define their limits more precisely.
At the Center for Surgery and Gastrointestinal Endoscopy we have three years of experience with the use of High Definition Endoscopy and Digital Chromoendoscopy. With the advent of this technology, we have achieved more precise and timely diagnoses, with a marked increase in the early detection of polyps or precancerous lesions in the colon and stomach.
As a result, risky lesions that would otherwise be overlooked with the use of other endoscopic equipment can be treated before they become dangerous.
