Minimally-invasive Endoscopy & Applied Robotics is an Open Access, online-only, peer-reviewed journal focusing on the publication of original manuscripts, cases series/reports, authoritative reviews and/or opinion papers in the field of minimally-invasive digestive endoscopy and applied medical robotics. Minimally-invasive platforms and devices such as smart flexible endoscopes and capsule/probe-based endoscopy have, since the dawn of the Millennium, changed the approach to diagnosis and therapy/treatment delivery and introduced the concept of minimal discomfort in the examination of the gastrointestinal district. Moreover, robotics applied to minimally-invasive digestive endoscopy demonstrated to introduce significant benefits through the integration of innovative smart locomotion mechanisms, localization methodologies and sensing for closed-loop active control and enhanced diagnosis and therapy.
