UCLH hosts live advanced endoscopy study day to demonstrate best practice for Pentax i-scan

PENTAX Medical : 24 April, 2013  (Company News)
University College Hospital London NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) is hosting its third 'hands-on' gastrointestinal endoscopy study day on Thursday July 4th, 2013 focussing this time on upper GI, as well as exploring the effective use of Pentax Medical's HD+ and i-scan imaging system.

The first two events proved successful with consultant endoscopists from around the UK commenting that the chance to watch live procedures and talk to experts in the field of gastroenterology at UCLH was extremely useful. The latest study day is entitled:

'Endoscopic diagnosis of early neoplasia in the Oesophagus' and will feature live endoscopy cases with a focus on:

  • Enhanced optical imaging techniques for lesion recognition

  • Mucosal classification systems for early neoplasia

  • Chromoendoscopy

  • Radiofrequency ablation

  • Endoscopic mucosal resection

The faculty for the study day includes Dr Rehan Haidry, Dr Matthew Banks, Dr Laurence Lovat and Professor Krish Ragunath (Nottingham), and the session runs from 9am until 5pm at University College Hospital, London.


The experts will be leading four live cases which attendees can view and discuss amongst fellow delegates in a small group environment. There will also be a presentation given by Pentax Medical product specialist, providing a technical overview of the HD+ and i-scan imaging system which deliver live, clear 1.3 million pixel images and its virtual chromoendoscopy options, ideal for early cancer detection.


"I am extremely pleased that our i-scan study days have been very well received by our peers, particularly the opportunity for observation and discussion in small groups during our live cases," said Dr Matthew Banks, UCLH. "It is great to be able to share our knowledge and experience of the clinical benefits presented by HD+ and i-scan imaging. We also appreciate the feedback from attendees to ensure that future study days will even better meet the educational needs of our delegates."


The course has been awarded six CPD points (Continual Professional Development) by the Royal College of Physicians.
