BACKGROUND & AIMS Histopathology is the gold standard in the diagnosis of liver diseases but may be complicated by sampling error and bleeding. Confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) is a novel imaging modality providing in vivo histology. Previous studies using CLE for liver microscopy suffered from limited imaging depth using blue laser light and fluorescein. The aim of the current study was to evaluate a novel near-infrared (NIR) light probe with indocyanine green (ICG) contrast for in vivo… CONTINUE READING
