How Does Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) Work?
Olympus Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) is an optical technology available for a variety of medical disciplines which helps to visualize the minutest vascular and mucosal patterns. NBI uses only wavelenghts absorbed by hemoglobin for maximum contrast.
A number of studies highlight the clinical value of NBI, especially with regard to the detection of cancer and characterization of suspicious mucosal areas.
Compared to white-light endoscopy, the images of capillaries are less blurred and the probability of missing a lesion is reduced.
