Linked Color Imaging May Improve Diagnostic Accuracy for Eosinophilic Esophagitis

July 28th 2022, 5:55pm


Diagnostic accuracy for eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) was higher when white light images were used with linked color imaging rather than alone, suggesting that linked color imaging may be used to reduce diagnostic disparities among endoscopists.
