The results of the study can be found in the paper published in the Journal of Biomedical Optics, 26(10), 106002 (2021). https://doi.org/10.1117/1.JBO.26.10.106002: First-in-human pilot study of snapshot multispectral endoscopy for early detection of Barrett’s-related neoplasia

This multidisciplinary research project 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.
