 WGA(white globe appearance), if present within the demarcation line, is a highly specific endoscopic finding that could facilitate endoscopists differentiate between gastric cancer and non-cancer such as low-grade adenomas and gastritis.

 Furthermore, owing to the high-level visibility and ease of determination regardless of the level of endoscopic experience of endoscopists, the identification of WGA is expected to enhance the effect of qualitative diagnostic ability.
