Barrett's Esophagus can lead to adenocarcinoma
- One of the fastest growing incidence rates in the United States
- Endoscopic eradication of Barrett's Esophagus is complex and evolving
- Adherence to guidelines is very limited and can lead to inefficient cancer detection (1)
- Treatment can be delayed until the next endoscopy procedure
- Repeat biopsies can alter treatment
- Endoscopy provides limited insight on the need to treat or re-treat, choice of treatment modality and evaluation of treatment completeness
