Quality Indicators for EUS (On-Demand) | 2014
Description
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) has become integral to the diagnosis and staging of gastrointestinal (GI) and mediastinal mass lesions and conditions. EUS-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) allows the endoscopist to obtain tissue or fluid for cytological and chemical analysis, adding to the procedure’s utility. Furthermore, the recent development of EUS-guided core biopsy techniques enables histologic sampling in selected cases and for obtaining tissue for molecular analysis in the neoadjuvant and palliative settings. The clinical effectiveness of EUS and EUS-FNA depends upon the judicious use of these techniques. This update integrates new data pertaining to previously-proposed quality indicators and new quality indicators for performing EUS. The prioritized indicators that have wide-ranging clinical application, are associated with variation in practice and outcomes, and are validated in clinical studies.
Learning Objectives
This webinar will:
  • Identify ASGE/ACG endorsed indicators for quality performance of EUS
  • Discuss the evidence which supports these indicators and performance targets for these indicators
About the Presenter
