Endoscopy with Improved Image is organized by American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and will be held during May 01, 2008 - Jan 31, 2020.
The target audience for this medical event is Gastroenterologists in practice, specialists in gastroenterology training and interns, resident doctors, assistants of doctors and nurses. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 0.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
This epic compendium of exceptional high-definition video material demonstrates in great detail the advances in enhanced image endoscopy (IEE) currently available in the endoscopist's therapeutic arsenal; explains each modality and technique with respect to its expected and potential clinical utility, its inherent characteristics in the improvement of endoscopic visualization, and possible future applications from the esophagus and the upper digestive tract to the colon. The topics covered in this video include, among others, high-resolution images compared to high-definition images, improved image based on projected ink compared to electronically enhanced images, identification of the patterns of the mucosa and vascular details of the mucosa highlighted by the IEE, and the use of spray caps and catheters in the IEE. In addition, the complementarities of the improvement of the electronic image and by projection of ink in the detection of metaplasia and neoplasia, the applications in the inflammatory bowel disease and the joint use of the IEE with advanced techniques of mucosal resection are presented.
As a result of participating in this educational activity, physicians will be able to perform the following tasks:
• Describe the various techniques and technologies of endoscopies with improved imaging currently available.
• Analyze the clinical utility of endoscopy with improved imaging.
• Interpret the findings in the mucosa that are manifested in the images produced by the various modalities of endoscopy with improved imaging.
• Analyze current and future potential applications of endoscopy with improved imaging.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
