Imaging of Esophagus with OFDI system
This is a single center pilot study conducted in 30 patients scheduled for therapeutic intervention. As the purpose of the study is to assess the response of the esophagus to radio frequency (RF) ablation, and the degree of residual Barrett's Esophagus (BE) remaining following treatment, OFDI imaging of study participants will occur prior to the scheduled BARRX RF treatment, and at the standard 3 and 6 month follow-up visits.
Following initial visual surveillance of the esophagus, the study experimental procedure will begin. Imaging will be performed with the OFDI system in 4 longitudinal (~5cm) volumetric segments that are spaced equally circumferentially along the esophagus in a similar fashion to the standard 4-quadrant biopsy protocol.
Each of the 4 OFDI imaging segments will be acquired in less than 1 minute.
