chromoendoscopy

A technique of using dyes during endoscopy to improve tissue differentiation. Dyes such as methylene blue, Toluidine blue and Lugol's solution all have the ability to stain particular types of cells. By coupling these dyes with endoscope technology, chromoendoscopy can simplify the identification process of structures in mucosa and tissue.
