Comparison Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy With Conventional Endoscopy for the Detection of Early Gastric Cancers
Endoscopy is proved to be the best method to achieve early diagnosis of gastric cancer (GC).
Confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE), a new diagnostic modality, has been shown to be
valuable in increasing the diagnostic yield of colorectal neoplasias, but it is not clear
whether CLE is helpful to find out early gastric cancer (EGC).The aim of the study is to
investigate the value of CLE in improving the detection of EGCs.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
To compare the rate of EGCs/GCs using CLE versus conventional gastroscopy.
