The preoperative diagnosis of biliary neoplasms is associated with a low sensitivity. To overcome this limitation, probe-based confocal laser endomicroscopy was further developed to enable in vivo microscopic imaging, with confocal miniprobes further miniaturized to such an extent to enable their use even via the instrumentation channel of cholangioscopes. The current data available suggest that this new technology represents a promising approach for further differentiation of strictures and… CONTINUE READING
