Abstract

Minimally invasive diagnosis and treatment is a rapidly developing field, and has potential to significantly improve patient management and health care utilization. This research will apply endoscopic innovations to diagnose and treat early oesophageal and pancreatic cancer, with the aim to improve survival and quality of life. The research will also develop capacity to treat oesophageal motility disorders with minimally invasive endoscopic resection techniques.
