Emphasis will be on assessing the size of the polyp and how it is the primary risk factor for malignancy. A review of various cases in this webinar will highlight options for consideration on how polyps are removed and then examined pathologically and what microscopic features who with indicators towards increased risk for malignancy. For fellows and other clinicians, will review the primary ways to improve the quality of colonoscopy thorough bowel preparation, high-quality inspection of the colon, methods to improve the ADR, and techniques to ensure that once polyps are found, they are completely removed.

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.
