    Abstract

    Gastric cancer demonstrates marked geographic variability in regions and within countries, with more than 70% of incident cases concentrated in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs). Gastric cancer screening procedures are conducted at regional or urban medical centers using flexible endoscopes, which provide high-definition video and a tool channel for interacting with the tissue. Alternative endoscopic screening technologies that could potentially be used in LMICs include capsule endoscopes and robotic endoscopy. The HydroJet has undergone further development and shows greatly improved controllability and portability, paving the way for translation to human trials.
