Abstract

The current study aimed to evaluate the clinical value of using blue laser imaging combined with magnifying endoscopy in the diagnosis of chronic gastritis (CG). The groups used were as follows: The white light group (WLI, control group), linked color imaging group (LCI, observation group 1), blue laser imaging (BLI)‑bright (brt) group (BLI‑brt; observation group 2), BLI + magnified imaging (ME) group (observation group 3). WLI mode initially allowed the observation of mucosal suspicious lesions on the gastric mucosa. These lesions were photographed and the mode was changed to LCI, BLI‑brt and BLI + ME. Different observational patterns were compared between modes to diagnose various grades of chronic gastritis. No significant differences were observed in the baseline information of enrolled patients. The LCI mode diagnosis rate was higher for Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection than in any other mode. LCI exhibited a high diagnostic rate for HP, BLI‑brt exhibited a high diagnostic rate for atrophy and BLI/BLI + ME exhibited a high diagnostic rate for intestinal metaplasia and intraepithelial neoplasia. All modes exhibited higher diagnostic rates compared with the WLI mode. The pathological HP diagnosis rate (consistency) of HP infection was the greatest in the LCI group (endoscopic findings and pathological consistency). The BLI‑BRT mode exhibited the highest pathological diagnosis rate for atrophic gastritis and the BLI/BLI + ME mode exhibited the highest diagnostic rate for intestinal metaplasia and low‑grade intraepithelial neoplasia.
