In particular, the introduction of the NBI endoscopy technique is considered a major breakthrough. So what is a NBI endoscopy? And are there any differences from the traditional colonoscopy? The following article will clearly explain the above questions.

According to statistics, 70% of the Vietnamese population is at risk of stomach upset, 26% of the population suffer from peptic ulcer disease. Stomach cancer is becoming alarming day by day because of the trend of "rejuvenation" with 20-25% of patients under the age of 40.

Narrow Band Imaging

NBI, narrow-band endoscopy is a technique that uses light of a certain color range to achieve the best contrast of the tissue and mucosal images. Because light with only 415nm and 540nm wavelengths is used, NBI endoscopy allows a more thorough, detailed analysis of the changes in the gastrointestinal mucosa and shallow capillary systems. nourishes the mucosa. As a result, this technology is applied to diagnose gastrointestinal cancer at an early or very early stage.

What is the difference between a NBI and a traditional colonoscopy?

Although it is still an endoscopic technique, the NBI endoscopy technology is considered a breakthrough in early detection of cancer and gastrointestinal disease. Because if the traditional endoscopy method uses complex light technology with a frequency range from 380nm to 780nm, it does not penetrate deep into the submucosa. Therefore, this endoscopy method only detects lesions that have formed on the surface.

NBI endoscopy technology helps in early or very early diagnosis of gastrointestinal cancer

And the NBI endoscopy technique can go deeper and concentrate in the submucosa, detect abnormal proliferation of the very shallow microvascular system at the tumor site, because it only uses 2 certain wavelengths. is 415nm and 540nm. As a result, it is possible to support early diagnosis of gastrointestinal cancer in an early stage when the blood vessels are focusing on nourishing the tumor; At the same time, it can be cut off during internal comparisoni.
