    2. The new kid on the block for advanced imaging in Barrett’s esophagus: a review of volumetric laser endomicroscopy

      The new kid on the block for advanced imaging in Barrett’s esophagus: a review of volumetric laser endomicroscopy
      Advanced imaging techniques used in the management of Barretts esophagus include electronic imaging enhancement (e.g. narrow band imaging, flexible spectral imaging color enhancement, and i-Scan), chromoendoscopy, and confocal laser endomicroscopy. Electronic imaging enhancement is used frequently in daily practice, but use of the other advanced technologies is not routine. High-definition white light endoscopy and random four quadrant biopsy remain the standard of care for evaluation of Barretts esophagus; this ...

    3. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy can target neoplasia not detected by conventional endoscopic measures in long segment Barrett’s esophagus

      Volumetric laser endomicroscopy can target neoplasia not detected by conventional endoscopic measures in long segment Barrett’s esophagus
      Methods and study aims: The incidence of esophageal cancer is rising despite increased surveillance efforts. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) is a new endoscopic imaging tool that can allow for targeted biopsy of neoplasia in Barretts esophagus. We report a series of 6 patients with long-segment Barretts esophagus ( 3 cm), who underwent a session of endoscopy with volumetric laser endomicroscopy, after a separate prior session of standard high-definition endoscopy with narrow ...

    4. Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact

      Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact
      The optical coherence tomography (OCT) industry has grown dramatically in its first 25 years, and while the positive effects on patient clinical care are the most important measure of OCT's success, its contributions to the economy in jobs, tax receipts, and healthcare savings are also noteworthy. The field of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has grown dramatically since its discovery in the early 1990s. The commercialization and growth of OCT ...

    8. Recent development of optical coherence tomography for preoperative diagnosis of esophageal malignancies

      Recent development of optical coherence tomography for preoperative diagnosis of esophageal malignancies
      Endoscopic diagnosis with histological evidence is necessary to decide the best strategy for treating esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and Barretts-associated neoplasia, and the recent development of endoscopic technologies have made possible real-time information of malignant hallmarks. We focused on the development of optical coherence tomography (OCT), the only technology that can depict real-time cross-sectional images with high resolution. With the improvements in image resolution, acquisition rate and demonstrable area of ...

    9. Detection of buried Barrett’s glands after radiofrequency ablation with volumetric laser endomicroscopy

      Detection of buried Barrett’s glands after radiofrequency ablation with volumetric laser endomicroscopy
      Background and Aims The prevalence and clinical relevance of buried Barretts glands (BB) after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in Barretts esophagus (BE) are debated. Recent optical coherence tomography studies demonstrated a high prevalence of BBs. Direct histological correlation, however, has been lacking. Volumetric laser endomicroscopy (VLE) is a second-generation optical coherence tomography system capable of scanning a large surface of the esophageal wall layers with low-power microscopy resolution. The aim was ...
