Endocytoscopy is a novel magnifying endoscopy method that provides images of living cells. We performed endocytoscopy on the fresh esophagus with 0.5% methylene blue. The images of normal esophagus and esophageal cancer by the endocytoscopy wers consistent with the horizontal histological pictures. This new modality will show the optical biopsy under ongoing endoscopy.
