    Imaging Apparatus With Balloon And Shaped Tip

    Exemplary imaging apparatuses are described. Various imaging apparatuses may implement optical coherence tomography (OCT) and/or optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) gastrointestinal tissue imaging methods and technologies. Furthermore, the imaging apparatuses may include a rotatable imaging element to scan a bodily lumen, such as the esophagus. The imaging element may be housed within an inflatable balloon. Still further, the imaging apparatuses may include a shaped tip. The shaped tip may aid in guiding an imaging apparatus through the esophagus, or other bodily lumen.
