Reports on methods of surveillance for Barrett's esophagus. Improvement of the small degree of resolution and tissue penetration to medium, large or even extra large levels of refinement, sensitivity and specificity; Use of a standard video endoscope in chromoendoscopy; Detection of backscattered infrared light from microstructures within the tissue layers of the esophagus by optical coherence tomography.
