Live Medical Broadcast Feed Delivered to Classrooms: ERCP
Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a technique that combines the use of endoscopy and fluoroscopy to diagnose and treat stones, tumors, or narrowing in the bile ducts. Through the endoscope, the physician can see the inside of the stomach and duodenum, and inject dyes into the ducts in the biliary tree and pancreas so they can be seen on x-rays.
Yale’s Therapeutic ERCP/EUS Workshop is a live demonstration of Therapeutic ERCP/EUS. Therapeutic ERCP/EUS is an evolving and increasingly important part of gastroenterology. There are ongoing refinements in technique as well as strategies to minimize complication rates in this procedure and the scope of indications continues to expand. These courses are presented by Priya A. Jamidar MD and Harry Aslanian MD, of the Yale School of Medicine Department of Internal Medicine, Section of Digestive Diseases.
The Yale Broadcast Team delivers the video and audio feed between the endoscope and the procedure room and multiple conference rooms where viewers hold discussions and take questions. Audio between a distinguished faculty member providing commentary in the procedure room and the conference rooms allow observers to ask questions and interact with doctors performing the procedure.
The Therapeutic ERCP/EUS Workshops were recently named “Best Practices” by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Society for Academic CME (SACME). For more information about ERCP/EUS Workshops at Yale please visit the Yale Continuing Medical Education website.
