GIE Editorial Board top 10 topics: advances in GI endoscopy in 2019

      The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy’s GIE Editorial Board reviewed original endoscopy-related articles published during 2019 in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and 10 other leading medical and gastroenterology journals. Votes from each individual member were tallied to identify a consensus list of 10 topic areas of major advances in GI endoscopy. Individual board members summarized important findings published in these 10 areas of disinfection, artificial intelligence, bariatric endoscopy, adenoma detection, polypectomy, novel imaging, Barrett’s esophagus, third space endoscopy, interventional EUS, and training. This document summarizes these “top 10” endoscopic advances of 2019.

      Abbreviations:

      ADR (adenoma detection rate), AI (artificial intelligence), ASGE (American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy), ATP (adenosine triphosphate), BE (Barrett’s esophagus), BLI (blue laser imaging), CNN (convolutional neural network), ESG (endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty), FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration), GRAIDS (GI AI diagnostic system), HDWL (high-definition white light), IRIS (intelligent real-time image segmentation), LAMS (lumen-apposing metal stent), LCI (linked-color imaging), LHM (laparoscopic Heller myotomy), NBI (narrow-band imaging), POEM (peroral endoscopic myotomy), WE (water exchange)
