Summary

The virtual reality endoscopy simulator is a highly sophisticated computer device that uses authentic flexible endoscopes and virtual accessories. It aids in the acquisition of basic endoscopy skills and initial training in gastroscopy, colonoscopy and ERCP. Simulation-based training is an important part of the education of endoscopy novices. In contrast to training carried out directly on patients, a virtual simulator allows initial training in digestive endoscopy while preventing potential discomfort and possible risk to patients.
