ACG’s Pathology and Imaging in the Evaluation of Gastrointestinal Disease Course includes four mini-sessions, each devoted to new developments and old problems of special interest to the clinical gastroenterologist in pathology and imaging in a specific portion of the GI tract. A popular biennial offering of the College, this year’s course expands the mini-session concept to include a combination lecture by a pathologist and a radiologist with the addition of correlated endoscopic images.
