Abdominal ultrasonography by the hepato-gastroenterologist : problems, demands, solutions

Price: €10,00

This document analyzes the reasons for organizing an abdominal ultrasound training for Belgian trainees in hepatogastro - enterology. The hepatogastroenterology speciality should implement, together with the radiology speciality and the national scientific and professional associations, the minimum training requirements which are proposed by the European Board of Gastroenterology and Hepatology and the European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology. Trainees in hepatogastroenterology should acquire the same theoretical and practical training as radiologists, they should be taught and supervised by competent instructors and have their expertise evaluated.

Screening for colorectal cancer in asymptomatic average risk patients : role of imaging

Price: €10,00

Early detection of colorectal cancer or advanced adenomas is a public health priority in many industrialized countries. There are various methods of screening average risk individuals for colorectal cancer, and their effectiveness may depend on subjective parameters like local expertise and patient’s preferences. This paper reviews these tests with special emphasis regarding imaging techniques that aim to provide less-invasive alternatives to optical colonoscopy (OC) which is the standard of reference. Both Double- Contrast Barium Enema (DCBE) and Virtual Colonoscopy (VC) have >90% sensitivity compared to OC in the detection of clinically relevant colonic lesions. Nevertheless, VC may have an edge over DCBE for technical and reproductivity reasons, as well as greater learning opportunities. Imaging techniques criticisms regarding diminutive and flat lesions, cost, radiation exposure and effects on gastroenterological practice are addressed. (Acta gastro enterol. belg., 2011, 74, 70-76).
