Confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE) is a new diagnostic technique that allows microscopic examination of the digestive mucosa during ongoing endoscopy. Different types of tissue and diseases can be diagnosed immediately, and analysis of the in vivo microarchitecture is helpful to better target standard biopsies and reduce the number of biopsies required. In this lecture, this interesting technique is presented.
