In this article we review the state of the art development of fibre-optic Raman probes for in vivo tissue diagnosis in the upper gastrointestinal tract. We identify the major breakthroughs in probe development, reflect on results of the first in vivo trials, and discuss the crucial challenges that must be overcome before Raman spectroscopy can be considered for widespread clinical implementation.
