Experts provide their takes on whether chromoendoscopy is ready for prime time.

The June/July 2015 Issue of AGA Perspectives is now available, featuring adebate on chromoendoscopy and whether or not it's becoming the standard technique for colon cancer surveillance in IBD patients.

Marion, MD, argues that chromoendoscopy should become an integral part of IBD surveillance going forward, while Thomas Ullman, MD, explains why he believes the technology is not quite there yet.

Also in this issue, Seth Gross, MD, provides his perspective on the wide variety of new tools for enhanced detection of colon polyps and David Graham, MD, addresses the continuing confusion surrounding treatment strategies for H. pylori infection.
