ABCs of EUS: A Complete Roadmap (DV064)

Type: EUS


This CME activity consists of the ASGE video, ABCs of EUS: A Complete Roadmap, followed by a post-assessment and evaluation.

Nothing replaces having a mentor looking over our shoulder as we learn, but there are always questions about how to perform EUS that can only be answered at our own pace and in our own time. This DVD is a primer to the common problems experienced by beginner and intermediate trainees in Linear and Radial EUS, both Diagnostic and Therapeutic. The “ABCs of EUS: A Complete Roadmap” provides 17 narrated videos comprising of: EUS videos; literature discussion with slides of key points; diagrams and CT scans of regional anatomy along with animations to explain scope position and view orientation. The individual topics covered include a “stations” approach to Normal EUS of the Mediastinum, Stomach and Pancreato-Biliary region; Staging of Gastro-Esophageal and Pancreato-Biliary cancers; Neuro-Endocrine tumors; Sub-epithelial lesions; Pancreatic cysts; Biliary stones; Chronic and Auto-immune pancreatitis; the use of mini-probes, as well as FNA and therapeutic procedures such as Pancreatic pseudo-cyst drainage and Celiac axis block. The aim of this DVD is to provide you with a road-map to the understanding and practice of all the major areas of EUS.
