If light reflectance is part of the experimental protocol, any technical modifications required should be noted. Photographic documentation and radiographic correlation should be a standard part of the procedure and must be reported. If the endoscope was used for reflectance light probe insertion, data should be collected with the endoscope light guide off. Data to be collected and reported should include the contour of the reflectance tracing. Reporting data in this manner allows for archival database development as well as reproducibility of technique and results. In this manner, the applicability and utility of light reflectance methodologies can be further assessed.
