High-definition Confocal Endomicroscopy of the Common Bile Duct
Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology, 04/20/2012Shieh FK et al.
The authors demonstrate that high–definition Probe–based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE) of the common bile duct (CBD) by the GastroFlexUHD miniprobe is feasible and may offer improved image quality over the standard CholangioFlex probe. Further studies are needed to see if this improves the diagnostic accuracy of bile duct lesions.
