Differentiate features based on fact from those based on tradition.
Discuss the clinical implications of a diagnosis.
Use the criteria for premalignant lesions of the GI tract to identify them, assign a histologic grade to them, explain their prognostic and therapeutic significance and management implications, and deal with problems occurring in post-ablative biopsies.
