Chromoendoscopy


 

Chromoendoscopy is a medical procedure wherein dyes are instilled into the gastrointestinal tract at the time of visualization with fiber-optic endoscopy. The purpose of chromoendoscopy is to chiefly enhance the characterization of tissues, although dyes may be used for other functional purposes. The detail achieved with chromoendoscopy can often allow for identification of the tissue type or pathology based upon the pattern uncovered.
