Barrett’s Esophagus screening rates are very low — even for the high-risk patients

Multiple factors contribute to the low BE screening rate, even in high-risk patients, including limited primary physician awareness of the relationship between GERD and EAC and guidelines recommending BE screening as well as reluctance to refer patients, whose symptoms may be reasonably controlled on PPIs for an “invasive” endoscopy procedure.

Since even early stage esophageal cancer carries a poor prognosis, the only opportunity to save lives is through early detection — very very early detection.
