We have been studying experimentally and clinically to evaluate the histological effects and safety of the therapeutic Nd-YAG laser endoscopy by the contact method with new ceramic endoprobes comparing wit Li those by the non-contact method with single quartz fiber. In this paper, we would like to discuss possibilities of clinical application of endoscopic local hyperthermia using Nd-YAG laser (Laserthermia) with computer control system. Newly developed computer controlled Laserthermia may possible to apply for the treatment of the malignant tumor in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
