Summary of "Color information from linked color imaging is associated with invasion depth and vascular diameter in superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinoma."

Accurate diagnosis of invasion depth is important for reliable treatment of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, but it is limited to the muscularis mucosae to slight submucosal invasion (MM/SM1). The diagnostic accuracy of invasion depth is unsatisfactory and remains to be improved. We aimed to investigate the association between the color of the superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and invasion depth using linked color imaging (LCI) under light-emitting diode (LED) light sources.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Mental processing of chromatic signals (COLOR VISION) from the eye by the VISUAL CORTEX where they are converted into symbolic representations. Color perception involves numerous neurons, and is influenced not only by the distribution of wavelengths from the viewed object, but also by its background color and brightness contrast at its boundary.

A form of phototherapy using color to influence health and to treat various physical or mental disorders. The color rays may be in the visible or invisible spectrum and can be administered through colored lights or applied mentally through suggestion.

Color of the iris.

Defects of color vision are mainly hereditary traits but can be secondary to acquired or developmental abnormalities in the CONES (RETINA). Severity of hereditary defects of color vision depends on the degree of mutation of the ROD OPSINS genes (on X CHROMOSOME and CHROMOSOME 3) that code the photopigments for red, green and blue.

Type of vision test used to determine COLOR VISION DEFECTS.
