 We think that the purpose of endoscopic diagnosis of the gastrointestinal tract is to ensure consistency in its findings with those of histopathological diagnosis. The correlation between endoscopic and histopathological findings depends upon the following conditions:1)understanding the entire lesion's gross morphological characteristic with normal endoscopic observations and its microsurface and microvascular structure with magnified observations, 2)en bloc or other appropriate resections, 3)maintaining specimen to be in vivo condition and fixing it in formaldehyde, and 4)slicing out of specimen by the clinician oneself or requesting pathologists with clear instructions so that image characteristics can be reflected. However, it is necessary for us to consider a part disappearing in a prepared slide manufacture process. We insist that such a steady manufacture process leads to diagnostics improvement.
