Marietta Iacucci et al. Beyond white light: optical enhancement in conjunction with magnification colonoscopy for the assessment of mucosal healing in ulcerative colitis

In this pilot study, a novel scoring system was introduced for active inflammation in ulcerative colitis, using the I-SCAN optical enhancement score imaging system. In 41 patients, the authors found a good correlation between real-time optical enhancement score and two different histology scores for the assessment of inflammation. Optical enhancement also suggested inflammation in most patients with a Mayo score of 0.
