Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology, 04/20/2012Shahid MW et al.
The study suggests that probe–based confocal laser endomicroscopy (pCLE) has superior sensitivity as compared with narrow band imaging (NBI) for detection of dysplasia in duodenal polyps. Combined accuracy of pCLE and NBI approaches that of ex vivo pathology, which may help in avoiding biopsy sampling.
