All In addition, in patients without focal lesions, endoscopists often take only a few antral samples or do not perform biopsies at all [2]. Consequently, omission errors may increase. A possible solution to the problem is the prediction of gastric health during endoscopy (i.e., in real-time). This way, the endoscopist could be alerted to the presence of abnormalities and select the most appropriate diagnostic approach. A potential method of predicting gastric health may be the
