SWALLOWING A LASER CAM PILL TO CHECK YOU OUT INSIDE

Barrett’s esophagus is a precancerous condition typically caused by chronic exposure to stomach acid, and is usually diagnosed by inserting an endoscope down the patient’s throat. A tool has been developed, however, that should allow for a quicker, easier way of getting a good look at such peoples’ esophagus – it’s a swallowable capsule that contains a spinning laser.

The device was created by a team at the Harvard University-affiliated Wellman Center for Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, led by Prof. Gary Tearney.

The transparent capsule is “about the size of a multivitamin pill,” and is attached by a thin tether to an imaging/control console. Contained within the capsule is an optical frequency domain imaging (OFDI) system, which incorporates a rapidly-spinning near-infrared laser. As the beam swings around, it strikes the adjacent esophageal lining and is reflected back into the capsule, where photosensors detect it. Using that reflected light, a highly-detailed 3D map of the lining is created.
