Brief Summary:
This study will test a newly developed dual modality probe, including optical coherence tomography (OCT) and angle-resolved low-coherence interferometry (a/LCI), in the human esophagus to determine 1) whether adequate tissue contact can be attained by the probe to acquire high quality images, and 2) to identify if these images can discern whether the imaged tissue is squamous or Barrett's Esophagus (BE) epithelium. This pilot study will test the operating characteristics of the probe and collect data for further optimization of the a/LCI-OCT device.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. percentage of imaged sites correctly categorized as squamous or Barrett's mucosa [ Time Frame: day 1 ]
    percentage of imaged sites correctly categorized by a/LCI-OCT as squamous or Barrett's mucosa when compared to endoscopy


Secondary Outcome Measures :
