Quality Standards in Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: A Position Statement of the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) and Association of Upper Gastrointestinal Surgeons of Great Britain and Ireland (AUGIS)

This is a clinical practice guideline on the use of endoscopy for the diagnosis of upper gastrointestinal (UGI) cancers. Pre-procedural, procedural, post-procedural, and disease-specific recommendations are provided. The primary outcome of interest is to optimize the diagnosis of early neoplasia and premalignant conditions of the upper gastrointestinal tract, in order to reduce the effects of UGI cancers which are often associated with a poor prognosis due to late detection.
