ASGE Endoscopy Live: Colonoscopy Symposium (On-Demand) | September 2022
Release Date: September 12, 2022
Viewing Time: 5
A major health priority is to increase colorectal cancer screening, and colonoscopy remains an important method of screening. This is followed by polypectomy being the most influential and relevant technique used by gastroenterologists globally in preventing colorectal cancer. Today, we can now consider the addition of artificial intelligence technologies to our list of tools in our ongoing efforts to increase adenoma detection rate (ADR) as the main surrogate outcome parameter of colonoscopy quality. This ASGE Live Endoscopy series will provide you with world leaders demonstrating a variety of colonoscopy, EMR and other endoscopic techniques while discussing Healthy People 2030 target of increasing to 74% of the proportion of adults aged 50-75 years to have received a colorectal screening test based upon USPST 2021 updated guideline recommendations.

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Although all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, we currently recommend using Chrome for the best functionality when accessing GI Leap. Please note that Internet Explorer is not a supported browser. Follow these 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.
