"This well written book by experts provides a detailed explanation of new technologies that will revolutionize the way gastrointestinal endoscopy is done. It provides a large amount of pictures and videos that illustrate the advantages and limitations of these technologies. This would be a useful consultation source in a field that has limited reviews of this type. Every physician performing gastrointestinal endoscopy should read this book." Luis R. Peqa, MD, FACG(University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
