Editorial: Miles to Go on the SCENIC Route: Should Chromoendoscopy Become the Standard of Care in IBD Surveillance?

Higgins, Peter D R MD, PhD, MSc1

American Journal of Gastroenterology: July 2015 - Volume 110 - Issue 7 - p 1035–1037
doi: 10.1038/ajg.2015.179

Abstract: The recent SCENIC Consensus statement has raised questions about which patients with chronic colitis should receive chromoendoscopic surveillance. Two papers in this issue of the American Journal of Gastroenterology provide more evidence and context, and this editorial discusses the current evidence base, which patients might benefit from chromoendoscopy, and what more evidence is needed before chromoendoscopy can be considered a possible new standard of care in all patients with chronic colitis.
