I don't see how they could really be of much use in an endocopy proceedure, because you can't really tell anything by just looking without actually taking biopsies right ?
My consultant could tell from looking during the biopsy that I didnt have ceoliac. I think sometimes it can be totally obvious one way or another - but in most cases they need to check with the biopsies.
he still did the biopsies to make sure obviosly (I didnt go through all that for him to guess!!!!)
I saw an endoscopy on the telly (city hospital, London) where he was a definate ceoliac and the dr could tell for sure, just needed the biopsy to confirm - which it did.
I have no idea how they can tell...just looked like pink wobbly stuff to me
Fascinating to hear about the new procedure, would love to know how you get on.
