Precancerous cells
Dysplasia (from ancient Greek δυσ- dys-, "difficulty" + πλάσις plasis, "formation") is a term used in pathology to refer to an abnormality of development. This generally consists of an expansion of immature cells (such as cells of the ectoderm), with a corresponding decrease in the number and location of mature cells. Dysplasia is often indicative of an early neoplastic process. The term dysplasia is typically used when the cellular abnormality is restricted to the originating tissue, as in the case of an early, in-situ neoplasm.
Dysplasia, in which cell maturation and differentiation are delayed, can be contrasted with metaplasia, in which cells of one mature, differentiated type are replaced by cells of another mature, differentiated type.
The terms hip dysplasia and fibrous dysplasia also refer to abnormal development, but at a more macroscopic level.

Washington: Oesophageal adenocarcinoma is now the fastest growing form of cancer in the United States, but gastroenterologists at the Centre for Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy at the University of Rochester Medical Centre (URMC) have been using an innovative technology to detect Precancerous cells in time to prevent disease progression. Dr Vivek Kaul The WATS3D computer-assisted brush biopsy takes a wide sample of tissue from the oesophagus and then analyses it using a 3-Dimensionial computer imaging system that is based on an algorithm developed as part of the US Strategic Defence Initiative missile defence programme.
