Abstract

The development of new endoscopy systems represents a significant advance in the diagnosis of tumors. The prognosis for patients is strictly dependent on the early detection of malignant lesions, because early lesions of the digestive tract can be removed endoscopically by several techniques (e.g., polypectomy, endoscopic mucosal resection, submucosal endoscopic dissection).
