New Improved Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy System

Celiac.com 11/24/2007 - A new confocal laser microscopic probe has been developed by Mauna Kea Technologies which works in conjunction with conventional endoscopes providing real-time video sequences of the intestinal mucosa magnified 500-1000 times greater than the conventional endoscopic view.  Both normal endoscopic images and confocal images are available simultaneously, allowing the confocal probe to be visually positioned with the endoscope.  This system allows for an immediate diagnosis and eliminates the need to take and prepare intrusive biopsy samples.  The new system is an improvement over previously available confocal laser endomicroscopy systems, being easier and more intuitive to use.  Studies have shown the system to be effective in diagnosing celiac disease.  The Mauna Kea technologies website provides a detailed description of the device.

Explaining the term 'confocal' might make this article more meaningful.
