Barrett’s Esophagus and Esophageal Cancer Research

Mount Sinai is an internationally recognized academic medical and research center. We perform advanced research and clinical trials. As a result, we can offer you the opportunity to participate in one. Participation in a trial does not guarantee a cure. It does, however, allow you to receive care based on the latest scientific knowledge. You will also contribute to scientific discoveries that will help others down the line. 

We encourage you to discuss this option with your treatment team.  Some of our clinical studies are:

  • Endoscopic Multispectral Imaging for the Detection of Barrett’s Neoplasia
  • High-Resolution Microendoscopy for the Early Detection of Esophageal Squamous Cell Neoplasia
  • Confocal Endomicroscopy for the Early Detection of Barrett’s-Associated Neoplasia
  • Bioengineering Research Partnership: Optical Systems for In Vivo Molecular Cancer Imaging
