TCHEKMEDYIAN, Asadur J; PELLISE, María  y  SAENZ, Roque. Imágenes de banda estrecha o Narrow band imaging (NBI): una nueva era en endoscopía digestiva. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2008, vol.24, n.1, pp. 42-49. ISSN 0303-3295.

Summary NBI is a brand new technique for endoscopic visualization that allows a detailed assessment of the mucous surface and its vascular pattern. This involves a qualitative progress in the diagnosis of lesions in the digestive tube, as well as an improvement in follow-up of diseases such as Barrett’s esophagus, cancer, colorectal polyps and intestinal inflammatory disease, among others. Managing to properly treat patients, lowering risks and increasing safety, may be a reachable goal by applying this new technique, which is available for clinical use by simply pressing a key on the endoscopy.
