New York, New York 10029


Purpose:

The overall objective of this study is to obtain data to evaluate whether high-resolution imaging of the colon can assist clinicians in detecting dysplastic (precancerous) and neoplastic areas. This is a pilot study of a novel technology, a miniaturized microscope device which can be used during standard endoscopy to image the gastrointestinal epithelium. Theoretically, by visualizing superficial mucosal changes at a high-resolution and magnification, the investigators will be able to obtain optical images that can be used to guide endoscopic biopsy and polypectomy. This may foster the selective targeting of dysplasia/neoplasia, thereby improving diagnostic accuracy.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - surveillance of polyps or disease of the colon - screening colonoscopy - anoscopy for suspected or known anal dysplasia or neoplasia Exclusion Criteria: - unfit for standard colonoscopy or anoscopy - unable to provide informed consent
