Limited studies have evaluated the risk factors of gastric cancer (GC) after Helicobacter pylori eradication using endoscopic findings. We aimed to investigate GC detection-related endoscopic findings after H pylori eradication using linked color imaging (LCI), a novel image-enhanced endoscopy.

Name: Gastrointestinal endoscopy
Linked-color imaging (LCI) is a newly available image enhanced endoscopy (IEE) system, which emphasizes the red mucosal color. No study has yet compared LCI with other available IEE systems.
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 ...
Subjective evaluation and quantitative analysis of skin color are very important both in dermatology and in cosmetology, but results of existing objective classifications tend to be incompatible to vi...
Objective determination of skin color has become an essential requirement in managing pigmentary disorders including vitiligo. The readings of available devices can be influenced by factors such as su...
Numerous factors contribute to the onset and exacerbation of psoriasis. Genetic risk factors include HLA-Cw6 and mutations in the caspase recruitment domain family member 14 gene, . Environmental risk...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether a new colonoscopic viewing technique called Linked color imaging(LCI) helps endoscopists detect more dysplasia lesions in ulcerative coliti...
This study aims to examine the use of Linked Color Imaging in detection of gastric cancer precursors, as well as oesophageal and duodenal lesions.
Linked color imaging (LCI) is newly developed image-enhancing endoscopy technology that differentiates the red color spectrum more effectively than white light imaging thanks to its optima...
There are lack of endoscopic criteria for diagnosing Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection by conventional white light imaging (WLI). Linked color imaging (LCI) is a newly developed en...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the influence of several factors (light, extrinsic stain removal and operator's experience) in tooth color assessment. Tooth color will be assessed by ...
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, or inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiologic evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent.
Factors that can cause or prevent the outcome of interest, are not intermediate variables, and are not associated with the factor(s) under investigation. They give rise to situations in which the effects of two processes are not separated, or the contribution of causal factors cannot be separated, or the measure of the effect of exposure or risk is distorted because of its association with other factors influencing the outcome of the study.
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.
Peptic Ulcer Disease
Peptic Ulcer Disease - stomach ulcer, duodenal ulcers used to refer to all types of peptic ulcers. A peptic ulcer is an erosion in a segment of the Gastrointestinal (GI) muscularis mucosae, typically in the stomach (gastric ulcer) or the first few cent...
