Linked Colour Imaging Increases the Diagnostic Yield of Type 1 Gastric Carcinoid
Introduction: Type 1 Gastric carcinoid tumours (GCTs) are the most common neuroendocrine tumours of the stomach. Endoscopic diagnosis of Type 1 GCTs remains a challenge. White light endoscopy (WLE) and Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) have failed to demonstrate reliable endoscopic signs of carcinoid.
Aim(s): To evaluate the use of Linked Colour Imaging (LCI); the latest Fujifilm post- processing digital technology for the endoscopic diagnosis of Type 1 GCTs.
Materials and methods: Consecutive patients undergoing endoscopic surveillance of Type 1 GCTs were included. Endoscopic examination was performed using Fujifilm ELUXEOTM EG-760Z gastroscopes with imaging performed in the following sequence; WLE, blue laser imaging (BLI) and finally LCI. Lesion number, endoscopic diagnosis and likert visibility score (1-4; poor-excellent) were recorded for each imaging modality.
