In this publication, the emergence of novel molecular probes and endoscopic instruments for performing targeted imaging of neoplasia in the digestive tract is discussed. The digestive tract is an ideal place to develop these emerging methods, in particular for clinical applications because these hollow organs are easy to access with endoscopy and exogenous probes can be topically applied safely. The role of imaging is becoming ever more important as a clinical tool for assessing cancer biomarkers.
