At Mayo Clinic, specialists in the Esophageal Clinic recommend screening for Barrett's esophagus if you are:

  • Age 50 or older and have experienced GERD symptoms at least weekly for at least five years
  • Age 50 or older, have been treated with proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy for GERD and have never been screened for Barrett's esophagus

Mayo specialists use advanced imaging technology, which studies have shown can detect dysplasia more accurately than can standard endoscopy.
