Description


Diagnostic Procedures in Gastroenterology and Hepatology is a comprehensive course that focuses on all areas of Gastroenterology: Esophagus, Stomach, Small Bowel, Colon, Pancreas, Liver, and Biliary Tract. With an emphasis on those procedures and tests that aid in determining the diagnosis of the symptoms and problems presented by the patient with gastroenterological problems, the presentations will cover the following: (1) description of the disorder; (2) clinical characteristics, from the history and physical exam; (3) differential diagnosis and diagnostic criteria; (4) imaging studies, if applicable; (5) special tests, if indicated (e.g., biopsy, endoscopy); (6) tests used to exclude other causes; and (7) treatment outline: important considerations. The presentations are given by authorities in their respective areas of gastroenterology, which will provide the practitioner with the opportunity to learn from experience and expertise.
