|Actual Study Completion Date :||March 2014|
All patients included into the study will undergo endomicroscopy of the upper GI-tract.
Procedure: Confocal laser endomicroscopy
Endomicroscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract to capture endomicroscopic pictures from the small bowel, stomach and esophagus.
Device: Confocal Laser Endomicroscope
Pentax EC-3870 CIFK with the ISC-1000 confocal endomicroscopy processor - Pentax, Tokyo, Japan and Optiscan Pty Ltd, Notting Hill, Victoria, Australia
- Qualitative MALT-features on Endomicroscopy [ Time Frame: 2 years ]Establishing endomicroscopic features of MALT-lymphoma in the upper gastrointestinal tract. This outcome is a qualitative endpoint that will be assessed only descriptively.
- Sensitivity and Specificity of Endomicroscopy to diagnose GI-MALT-Lymphoma [ Time Frame: 2 years ]At the end of the study, endomicroscopic pictures gained during the study will be assessed by two blinded pathologists regarding judgement on MALT-lymphoma presence or absence. The results will be compared to the corresponding histological sections in order to calculate sensitivity ans specificity for the technique.
