The study, led by principal investigator Blair A. Jobe, M.D., a surgeon in the OHSU Digestive Health Center and member of the OHSU Cancer Institute, found that study participants preferred unsedated, small-caliber upper endoscopy, commonly referred to as the skinny scope, to the standard screening method for upper digestive disease, sedated upper endoscopy.

...
With approximately 10 million Americans struggling with chronic heartburn, also known as GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) - a condition closely associated with the development of one of the most lethal forms of cancer: esophageal cancer - the need for a cost-effective screening and surveillance system was long apparent to Jobe, who also is an associate professor of surgery in the OHSU School of Medicine, Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
"However, given the relative rarity of esophageal cancer compared with the high prevalence of GERD," Jobe explained. "Routine screening within the general population using traditional upper endoscopy would be too costly."
Eager to find an economically viable means of screening and monitoring this patient population, Jobe and colleagues endeavored to devise a method that would reduce the cost, inconvenience and complications associated with sedated endoscopy - and they succeeded.
...
According to Jobe, this is due in part to the perception that the unsedated skinny scope increases patient anxiety and discomfort.
