The field of endoscopy burgeoned from the ability to look at gross lining with the scope camera to broaden out to a myriad of different technologies using the scope as the vehicle. Visualization has gone beyond looking at the surface to assessing details at even a microscopic level with endomicroscopy. Diagnostics have improved with improved tissue acquisition in previously challenging areas in the pancreaticobiliary system with ERCP, cholangioscopy, advanced imaging techniques, and EUS FNA. Surgeons and oncologists increasingly rely on endoscopists for appropriate diagnosis and staging. Previously surgically treated benign and malignant diseases are now treated endoscopically, including pseudocyst drainage, endoscopic resection and ablation. The lines between surgery and endoscopy are blurred with the entertainment of transluminal surgery.

 

All of these new frontiers of endoscopy are rapidly evolving, and it is critical for practicing physicians to be updated on the latest evidence, practice, and technology. In a dynamic and interactive setting, this conference will outline where standard practices in endoscopy are currently and new innovations may enhance or revolutionize endoscopy practices in the future.

Learning Objectives and Target Audience

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

  • Implement standard guidelines for screening and surveillance for Barrett’s esophagus and colon cancer in their practice;

  • Analyze the  importance of detailed white light examination for all indications of upper endoscopy;

  • Describe the roles of digital imaging, chromoendoscopy, endomicroscopy, accessory cameras, and other advanced imaging techniques in the detection of luminal lesions;

  • Define the principles of safe and effective polypectomy and endoscopic resections;

  • Enumerate different diagnostic options in tissue acquisition in pancreaticobiliary tumors;

  • Discuss management techniques of pancreatitis and biliary pathology and roles of endoscopic procedures in these diseases;

  • Evaluate endoscopic options for treating bariatric and achalasia patients with gastrointestinal diseases.

This activity has been planned for gastroenterologists, endoscopists, endosonographers, surgeons, oncologists, nurses, and other health professionals committed to the advancement of endoscopy.
