(B) Expanded view of A demonstrates a layered appearance, including the epithelium (e), lamina propria (lp), muscularis mucosa (mm), submucosa (sm), and muscularis propria (mp). Vessels are clearly identified in the submucosa (arrows). (C) OFDI image of gastric cardia. (D) Expanded view of C demonstrates vertical pit and crypts, regular, broad architecture, high surface backscattering, and diminished image penetration.
