Research output: Contribution to conferencePresentation


This presentation addresses the technical component of performing unsedated lower GI endoscopy in the ambulatory setting utilizing pediatric endoscopes since 2004. Family physicians at USC have improved on existing lower GI endoscopic techniques to increase visualization, facilitate performance, and increase patient comfort during an extended 160 centimeter screening endoscopy. This presentation will include instruction on the water-infusion technique developed by Felix Leung, which is now widely used throughout the Veteran Administration system.
