 Diagnostic and Therapeutic Applications of EUS

Saturday, May 19, 2018
5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m.

Endoscopic ultrasound technology combines the maneuverability of an endoscope with
ultrasound's ability to image the body's inner wall layers to visualize lesions, organs, major
vessels and individual layers of the GI tract. In this CNE educational activity, participants
will explore FNA/FNB and Liver biopsy along with the therapeutic capabilities of EUS
and the major steps in the procedure.

Endoscope Valves and Accessories: An Overlooked Source of Cross-Contamination

Sunday, May 20, 2018
12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Have you ever wondered what was lurking in the cracks and crevices of all the little
removable pieces and parts that are attached to an endoscope? This session discusses
the evidence supporting the proposal that endoscope accessories, reusable parts (e.g. valves),
and cleaning implements can be a source of cross-contamination. Also discussed are the
proposed strategies to mitigate cross-contamination risk as outlined in current standards
and guidelines.

Visual Inspection of Flexible Endoscopes

Monday, May 21, 2018
7:00 a.m. - 8:00 a.m.

Flexible endoscopes are highly delicate pieces of equipment and, unfortunately, vulnerable to
damage. Normal wear and tear as well as physical trauma can lead to trouble. Current reprocessing guidelines require that all endoscopes be inspected to ensure they are visually clean and free of
damage. This session will review the common types of damage that can be detected using a
thorough visual inspection routine. Attendees will learn how to properly handle an endoscope in
order to avoid damage during routine use and reprocessing.
