Abstract

New endoscopic techniques have allowed for less invasive, safer, and more effective means of diagnosing and treating disease. Advances in diagnostic endoscopy will aid in the earlier detection of cancers through the use of tumor markers and more advanced endoscopes with higher resolution. Therapeutic endoscopic methods, such as PDT and EMR, have achieved clinical success in the cases in superficial GI tumor. Current therapies requiring surgical intervention or pancreaticobiliary cannulation may be replaced by less invasive methods, such as EUS. The key to developing these techniques will be through creative use of endoscopy and careful experimentation.
