Description

Two decades after the clinical introduction of capsule endoscopy, we dedicate the workshop to a discussion of recent research and clinical developments in the field, with a focus on the challenges associated with the integration of different subsystems providing additional capabilities, and on those associated with the use of capsules in a clinical setting.

Among the topics of interest, we will discuss clinical and engineering issues related to robotic capsule manipulation and autonomy, to the finite battery lifetime or the constraints of wireless power transfer, to the quality of visualization techniques, to the constraints of wireless data transfer or local storage, to widespread industrial adoption and market opportunities.

Programme

The programme will be posted in May 2024.

Learning Outcomes

The workshop will aim at stimulating discussion among the participants on the opportunities and on the challenges of recent research and clinical developments capsule endoscopy. The full day workshop will include presentations from invited speakers on significant progress of capsule endoscopy, issues and perspectives related to clinical applications, research and innovation directions, integration challenges, market trends and challenges, regulatory considerations.

The programme will also include two panels: one related to clinical aspects, and one to engineering and industrial aspects. In addition, an open call will be offered, with selection for poster presentations. This part aims to give participants broad exposure to the pertinent topic areas associated with capsule endoscopy technology.
