Title: Bring light to shine on medicine: a gastroenterologist’s view
In this short talk to respectful members of Electro-Optics Association, I would like to share with you what optical devices in clinical gastroenterology has evolved over the decades and where the trend that I perceived is moving toward. Moreover, I would also like to toss some unmet clinical needs/ niche that deserve further exploration.

Endoscopic techniques, with their visual navigation inside the human body, have somehow redesigned the gold standard of many different surgical and medical specialties, and at the same time have favored the diffusion of minimally invasive procedures. They have contributed to the development of less traumatic approaches and have allowed a potential for reduced complication, shorten hospital stay, and cost. Dr. Hong will show some videos from the real surgeries performed in NTUH to demonstrate the pros and cons of current endoscopic technology, and discuss about possible further developments in endoscopic surgery.
