Art in Endoscopy: “Pretty Pink”
28 January 2020 (online)
In this image, we clearly see a vertical demarcation line of a neoplastic lesion in a Barrett’s esophagus, visualized in linked color imaging in magnification mode. This optical chromoscopy technique is integrated into the Fujifilm ELUXEO 7000 endoscopy system and has been developed to enhance color differences in the mucosa, focusing on increased discrimination of red colors.

“Art in endoscopy” is an initiative of four gastroenterologists in training that aims to display examples of the incidentally beautiful images that are sometimes encountered in regular endoscopic practice.
