On Friday morning, a special session on radiation safety has been added to provide clinicians utilizing fluoroscopy with the risks and benefits of its use, including the most current educational information on fluoroscopy regulations, radiation biology, physics, equipment operation, image evaluation, dosing, and multiple aspects of patient safety. Invited expert faculty will perform multiple live luminal endoscopy, EUS and ERCP procedures to demonstrate techniques and technology for the benefit of participants watching the live feed in the Cedars-Sinai auditorium. To reinforce skills and obtain more personalized educational content, attendees may participate in hands-on workshops designed for GI fellows and GI nurses.
