DDW 2018 Presidential Plenary Debate: Dr. Michael B. Wallace vs. Dr. Tonya Kaltenbach | October 2018
How do you do blue?   Do you do it the old-fashioned way?   Or do you want to advance to the more modern, clean and fast way?  

Listen to Dr. Wallace present information and references to various literature citations on how to improve your ADR with enhanced imaging techniques.   He will suggest how the second generation of electronic chromoendoscopy improves adenoma and neoplasia detection and addresses “missed” rates.  

Dr. Kaltenbach will suggest that to increase ADR for individual endoscopists, one needs to know the signatures of the adenoma and that dye makes it a lot easier to detect abnormalities and accentuates the innominate grooves.   Dr. Kaltenbach suggests that Pan-colonic chromoscopy is the one technique that to date, has undergone rigorous assessment and should be recommended for routine practice.   You can also hear how alternatives to delivery of dye can possibly help in alleviating time constraints involved in incorporating routine panchromoscopy. 

Which method do you subscribe to in your endoscopy practice?

Learning Objectives
  1. Compare and contrast the use of electronic chromoendoscopy to the use of dye to increase ADR.
  2. Understand key variables that improve ADR:  better techniques and training; all eyes of the team on the screen; special caps to flatten folds and better scopes.
  3. Describe technological innovations that have enhanced mucosal visualization and polyp detection.
Target Audience

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Because all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, it is not always practical to point to a particular browser as "better" than another. Because browsers are free, you can easily shift from one to another for various purposes. Whatever browser you are using, here are some tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
