Video Capsule Endoscopy: The Basics & Beyond (DV072)

Type: Small Bowel


This CME activity consists of the ASGE video, Video Capsule Endoscopy: The Basics & Beyond, followed by a post-assessment and evaluation.

This video series on capsule endoscopy is geared to both novice and more experienced users. We start by taking viewers from the basics of equipment to normal findings and landmarks on capsule endoscopy. We will then review a number of conditions including bleeding, malabsorption, ulcerating diseases, and tumors and how they present on capsule endoscopy.  We finish the series with a number of diagnostic dilemmas that we are often challenged with in capsule endoscopy.  We are certain these videos will be instructive to both fellows and faculty, whether they are just beginning to learn capsule endoscopy or have experience.
