Membership often requests a deeper insight into advanced technology. This presentation will focus on an advanced look at endoscopic regrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and the tertiary options available in the diagnosis and treatment of biliary and pancreatic disease. This presentation will demonstrate through video case scenarios an advanced look at technology and its role in diagnosing and treating biliary and pancreatic abnormalities. An introduction to each case presentation will be given with insight into the disease process and the effect of the disease on our patient. The role of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) as a partner with ERCP will also be touched upon. What's new, what's happening, and what our future holds for patients with pancreatic and biliary abnormalities is the driving force behind this presentation.
