Chromoendoscopy is a technique of colonoscopically inspecting the colonic mucosa after staining it with dyes such as indigo carmine or methylene blue. Studies using this technique to look for subtle contour changes demonstrate improved rates of adenoma detection. Chromoendoscopy has been combined with improvements in optics such as imaging magnification to observe staining patterns for predicting tissue malignant potential. A randomized, prospective trial of 660 patients comparing this high-definition chromoendoscopy and standard OC showed that chromoendoscopy improved sensitivity for colorectal lesions (both neoplastic and non-neoplastic) of 6-10 mm from 90% to 97% and specificity from 61% to 100%.
