Recent literature has contributed a number of seminal observations and discoveries into the world of colonoscopic surveillance in inflammatory bowel disease. As the era of conventional white light endoscopy fades and new techniques emerge, whether with dye sprays, fluorescence, or some other modality, the common hope is that we will be able simultaneously to limit CRC-related mortality and unnecessary colectomies. The advances discussed in this review will certainly serve as building blocks as we move forward in this exciting field.
