This multidisciplinary research project that has developed the novel application of a multispectral imaging camera for use in endoscopy to detect early pre-cancerous changes in the oesophagus of Barrett’s oesophagus patients. This clinical feasibility study in 20 patients tests level of confidence in delineating the area of interest by the multispectral endoscope in terms of image quality and visibility.
