ASGE discussant highlights best research submitted to DDW® 2019

Bret T. Peterson, MD, FASGE

The Best of ASGE is part of our signature two-hour session, the Best of DDW, presented each year on Tuesday. Moderated by Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) Council Chair, Grace H. Elta, MD, AGAF, FASGE, representatives from each of the four societies highlighted key points and provided commentary on the top presentations of the latest, best and most thought-provoking research presented all week.

Bret T. Petersen, MD, FASGE, professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic, discussed nine of the top abstracts from ASGE presented during DDW 2019. Dr. Peterson worked with the societies’ program chairs to select the abstracts based on methodology, size, outcome, and whether the topic had clinical relevance to practice and appealed to broad interest. The selected abstracts covered five topical areas: artificial intelligence in GI endoscopy, new and expanding technology, colorectal, bariatrics and GI bleeding.
