The IC-RISC™ (“Interactive & Contextual RISk Calculator”) web application uses an individual’s risk factor profile to estimate his/her absolute risk of developing EAC (esophageal adenocarcinoma) over the next ten years. This educational  tool is meant to inform discussions between a health provider and  patient regarding:

  • how personal risk of EA fits into the “bigger picture” of health and disease,
  • whether preventive actions are indicated to possibly reduce risk of EA and other conditions, and
  • whether additional tests and procedures might be warranted to identify and manage those with high risk profiles.
