Esophageal Adenocarcinoma (EAC) is considered as the early stage of esophageal cancer developed mainly from the pre-malignant changes in esophagus lining named Barrett’s Esophagus (BE). Throughout the gastroin- testinal tract examination, premalignant and early cancer stages in the esoph- agus are usually overlooked as they are considered challenging to detect and requires a significant experience. Computer Aided Detection (CAD) systems, therefore, could be helpful in automatically detecting early cancerous lesions. With the recent advances in deep learning, the performance of object detec- tion methods has been increased to a great extent. In this paper, we aim to evaluate the performance of different state-of-the-art deep learning detection methods (RCNN, Fast, Rcnn, Faster RCNN, SSD) to automatically allocate BE abnormalities. To achieve that, a dataset of High-Definition white light en- doscopy images from 39 patients with corresponding manually annotated by five experienced clinicians has been evaluated. Experimental results show that Single Shor Multibox Detector (SSD) , outperforms other methods in terms of the evaluation measures
