Optical Diagnosis in Barrett Esophagus and Related Neoplazia

Daniela E. Dobru*

Abstract

The detection of high grade dysplasia and esophageal adenocarcinoma with improved survival rates is the aim of optical diagnosis in BE. Advanced imaging technologies improve the characterization of dysplastic BE by mucosal visualization and enhancement of the fine structural and microvascular details (mucosal and vascular pattern) and may guide targeted biopsies for the detection of dysplasia during surveillance of patients with previously non-dysplastic BE.
