The Paediatric Video Capsule Endoscopy Study Day
9th October, 2014

Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) provides a method to assess small bowel pathology by filling the endoscopic gap between push-enteroscopy and ileocolonoscopy and allows physicians to visualise the most inaccessible parts of the gut in a minimally invasive manner.

In it's second year, this state of the art course is designed to provide an overview of the application of VCE in children through a combination of lectures, interactive demonstrations and hands-on exercises. The structure of the program has been specifically tailored to address the needs of health professionals who perform VCE studies in Paediatric practice.

Well renowned Paediatric Gastroenterologists with expertise in the field of capsule endoscopy will enlighten delegates on the technicalities of VCE as well as on the pathology recognition and reporting through a series of case studies.
