Next Generation Endoscopy

Shaping the future of endoscopy

Endoscopy has transformed gastrointestinal disease diagnosis and treatment through minimally invasive procedures using flexible endoscopes and endoscopic capsules. Our interdisciplinary team of physicians, engineers, and computer scientists is advancing this field.

Our innovations include radar endoscopy for non-contact tissue visualization, intelligent sedation methods, and advanced AI for improved diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, we focus on teaching with new simulator- and software-based methods.

Our comprehensive approach covers diseases, treatment, endoscopy mechanics, image recognition, signal processing, tissue sampling, training simulators, and new technical procedures.

Funded by

Next Generation Endoscopy is also part of the Cluster4Future SEMECO. The Free State of Saxony is additionally funding this project.
