The device gives doctors the ability to see the detailed surface of a patient’s esophagus, but also can penetrate and image at a depth of around 10 microns—enough to allow the diagnosis of abnormal growth patterns in esophageal tissue, which are potentially a precursor to cancer.

The video on the webpage is pretty amazing.

Beautiful ! Thanks for sharing.

We probably need to start a separate thread consolidating all the latest and greatest advances for GERD.

That's not a bad idea. I think people have a tendency to be interested in innovations involving the medical field, especially when it pertains to them. So a thread that complies this information would be great.
