About these proceedings


For the first time gastroenterologists and computer scientists are brought together in discussion of this rapidly expanding field of interest. The book is divided into five main sections. The opening section discusses technical advances in the field of computing. The second section considers computerised endoscopy systems, presenting a survey of the area, together with information on specific systems commercially available. The third section is a discussion of audit, and the fourth section describes teaching systems which are of interest to general physicians and surgeons as well as to gastroenterologists. The final section discusses diagnostic and therapeutic applications in gastroenterology. The book presents a complete and up-to-date survey of what possibilities are currently available to practising clinicians and summarises the relevant and important applications.
