Barrett's Esophagus Study (H-36538)



Accuracy, Yield and Clinical Impact of a Low-Cost High Resolution Microendoscope in the Early Diagnosis of Esophageal Adenocarcinoma

The overall goal of the study is to determine whether imaging with the low-cost high resolution microendoscope (HRME) will increase the efficiency and yield of the current standard of endoscopic surveillance of Barrett's esophagus. We believe the HRME will provide an in-vivo "optical biopsy" that will be comparable to gold standard histopathology and allow the endoscopist to make a more informed decision about whether to obtain a biopsy or even perform endoscopic therapy (i.e. endoscopic mucosal resection, EMR).
