In this study the investigators aim to evaluate the ability of i-scan OE together with magnification endoscopy to detect and assess microscopic inflammation in patients with inflammator bowel diseases (IBD).
Condition or disease
Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
Diagnostic Test: Magnification endoscopy
In this study the investigators aim to evaluate the ability of i-scan OE together with magnification endoscopy to detect and assess microscopic inflammation in patients with inflammator bowel diseases. For this purpose, IBD patients will be prospectively enrolled and inflammatory changes will be assessed using optical magnification endoscopy in conjunction with optical chromoendoscopy. Endoscopic scoring of inflammatory changes in IBD patients will be done on a newly developed magnification score resulting as a consensus from experts in optical diagnosis and endoscopy in IBD patients. Results will be correlated against histopathology.
