This document is the official American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy guideline on screening and surveillance in patients with Barrett’s esophagus (BE) and is based on systematic reviews of the evidence using the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluation methodology. The document addresses key clinical questions that include the role and impact of screening and surveillance and the utility of advanced imaging and sampling modalities like chromoendoscopy, volumetric laser endomicroscopy, confocal laser endomicroscopy, EUS, and wide-area transepithelial sampling. This guideline complies with the standards for guideline development set forth by the Institute of Medicine for the creation of trustworthy guidelines and aims to help clinicians understand the published literature and the quality of available data with the ultimate goal of optimizing care for patients.
