School of Endoscopy

Over the years, biopsy under ultrasound guidance has become an irreplaceable method for obtaining tissue from target lesions inside and outside the digestive tract. It is considered the method of first choice for the cytohistological characterisation of lesions of the pancreas and intrapancreatic bile duct in the various international guidelines.

In collaboration with the School of Endoscopy, we enable you to participate in online courses.
