This preliminary study suggests MI measurements may provide the ability to immediately detect inflammation in patients with active EoE during an esophagogastroduodenoscopy, guiding immediate therapeutic decisions. This needs to be confirmed by further, prospective studies. The natural progression of this concept is to create a minimally invasive device that does not require endoscopic placement and addresses potential confounders such as intraluminal fluid/air, an effort currently ongoing. If successful, it has the potential to significantly reduce risks and costs of repeated endoscopic and histological evaluation.
