Lesions, polyps and other abnormalities in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract have a different composition compared to the normal mucose. The investigators plan to gather spectroscopic information from these features. Characterizing their unique spectrums, may help to enhance the detection and identification of these objects during endoscopy.
