The huge increase in the numbers of biopsies, together with the rapidly changing field of endoscopic and therapeutic techniques in all facets of gastroenterology, means that diagnostic criteria are continually updated, especially in biopsy interpretation. Additionally, descriptive terms (e.g. chronic colitis) as diagnoses without interpretation are increasingly regarded with suspicion. Attend this three and half-day course to learn how the experts interpret biopsies and to receive practical advice about preparing reports, including macros that you can use in your own sign outs.


You’ll receive valuable guidance in challenging areas that can directly affect patient management and outcomes, including the new diagnostic criteria for Barrett’s esophagus; the diagnosis of dysplasia tumors and inflammatory diseases in all parts of the GI tract, including lymphocytic disorders; and follow-up of MALT and other lymphomas. Discussions will focus on the rapidly expanding and evolving field of therapeutic endoscopic techniques, including problems you might encounter in biopsies following the use of ablative techniques.
