BACKGROUND AND AIM Small-caliber endoscopy has lower resolution than normal-caliber endoscopy, limiting its use in routine outpatient practice. Flexible spectral imaging color enhancement (FICE) strengthens the color contrast of depressed-type early gastric cancer without magnification. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the detection of depressed-type early gastric cancer using small-caliber endoscopy with the FICE system. METHODS Eighty-two patients diagnosed with depressed-type… CONTINUE READING
