is an international forum for endoscopic surgeons, interventional radiologists and industrial instrument manufacturers. It is the official journal of the Society for Medical Innovation and Technology (SMIT) whose membership includes representatives from a broad spectrum of medical specialities, instrument manufacturing, medical engineering, and research. The journal brings the latest developments and innovations in minimally invasive therapy to its readers. What makes MITAT unique is that we publish one or two special issues each year, each of which is devoted to a specific topic.

Topics include:

  • Interventional radiology
  • Endoscopic surgery
  • Imaging technology
  • Manipulators and robotics for surgery
  • Education and training  for MIS
