    Congratulations to Travis Sawyer who has received The 2019 Silver Inspiring Optical Innovation Award from Edmund Optics. Sawyer's award is for the development of a novel endoscope for early detection of esophageal cancer. The device uses optical coherence tomography (OCT) to analyze tissue structure and hyperspectral imaging (HSI) to probe metabolism. This endoscope will be the first to integrate OCT and HSI in a clinically-translatable device for esophageal cancer screening. Learn more about the award.
