Abstract

The present invention utilizes a device and method for visualization of a bodily lumen. The invention provides a device and method for visualization and inspection of a bodily lumen via deployment of a dual lumen balloon including an optical sensor, the balloon configured to smooth folded tissue upon deployment as well as maintain the surface of the balloon free from debris for optimal visualization of the bodily lumen.
