Methylene blue has been successfully used to aid in the identification of gastricintestinal metaplasia and early gastric cancer, and to highlight subtle mucosal changes in the small intestine and colon.
OCT overcomes this technical limitation by delivering a light signal via two separate pathways. One light beam is delivered to the tissue, and an identical light beam is delivered to a mirror, a known distance away from the detector. Using an interferometer and a property of light called coherence, only the light that returns from the tissue to the detector at the same time (and therefore the same distance) as the light delivered to the reference mirror creates an interference signal CHAPTER 3 / IMAGE ENHANCEMENT ENDOSCOPY and thus is detected.
It should be noted that the likelihood of N1 disease increases with deeper tumor invasion; 17% for T1 tumors, 55% for T2, 83% for T3, and 88% for T4 (40). EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) allows the addition of tissue sampling to endosonographic characteristics CHAPTER 4 / STAGING OF ESOPHAGEAL CANCER (Figs. 6 and 7). This significantly improves the ability to confirm malignant adenopathy (41–44). In a large multicenter study of upper GI lesions, 171 patients had EUS-FNA of 192 lymph nodes.
