Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the scientific committee, it gives us great pleasure to invite you to the “Leading Endoscopic Diagnosis and Treatment Strategies for Early Gastric and Laterally Spreading Colorectal Cancers” to be held at Intercontinental Hotel, Abu Dhabi on Friday, February 23, 2018.

Colorectal and Gastric Cancer is the fourth most common cancer worldwide and the second leading cause of cancer death. With the raised public awareness on early diagnosis and treatment of cancer as well as the development of endoscopic imaging and image enhanced techniques, such as Magnifying Endoscopy, the proportion of early gastric cancer (EGC) at diagnosis is increasing. Early detection is essential for effective diagnosis and treatment of early gastric cancer.

The program aims to discuss the latest endoscopic diagnostic and treatment of early colorectal and gastric cancer through a high level scientific content and state-of-the-art- lectures delivered by prominent speakers and experts in their fields from Leading Medical Institutes in Japan in a highly interactive and impactful way so that you can acquire new knowledge and skills that you can apply at your practice.

The event serves as a dynamic meeting which promotes engaging discussion, information sharing, experience-based perspectives and productive clinical debates between practicing physicians and researchers on the latest recommendations and emerging interventional therapies for endoscopic diagnostic and treatment of early colorectal and gastric cancer.

This meeting will offer a superb opportunity for physicians and medical specialties to attend expert updates and to share best practices and experiences and to network with new and established colleagues, creating and strengthening clinical collaborations.

We take this opportunity to welcome your participation and wish you a pleasant learning experience.
