Colorectal and Gastric Cancer is the fourth most common cancer worldwide and the second leading cause of cancer death. With the raised public awareness on early diagnosis and treatment of cancer as well as the development of endoscopic imaging and image enhanced techniques, such as Magnifying Endoscopy, the proportion of early gastric cancer (EGC) at diagnosis is increasing. Early detection is essential for effective diagnosis and treatment of early gastric cancer.
