Improving Detection of Precancer of the Esophagus in Patients with Chronic Heartburn

Researchers in the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Digestive Health Center report that screening people with chronic heartburn or pre-cancer of the esophagus in an office setting using a “skinny scope” is as accurate, less expensive and less risky than a traditional sedated screening in a procedure room — and patients prefer it. The findings are published online and in print in the February issue of the American Journal of Gastroenterology.
