The main research areas include different aspects of digestive endoscopy and especially in endoscopic ultrasound (EUS). Peter Vilmann was the first in the world to perform EUS guided fine needle biopsy (1991) and is inventor of the first needle assembly for EUS-guided aspiration biopsy. He has conducted pioneering work in the field of EUS and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), including the development of EBUS-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA). He also took an active role in the development of enteroscopy techniques, with testing of double balloon, single balloon and spiral enteroscopy. Furthermore, he has introduced a non-anesthesiologist propofol sedation (NAPS) program at Gentofte University Hospital and took an active role in the structured evaluation of competency in Denmark. Latest work include developments in Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (CLE), NOTES (natural orifices transluminal endoscopic surgery) and minimal invasive endoscopic interventions for obesity and digestive anastomoses
