DIGESTT Diploma in Imaging for Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgery – Training and Testing. Ultrasound meets Minimal Invasive Gynaecological Surgery (MIGS). A practical hands-on training on 2D/4D US modalities, for preoperative treatments and post-operative follow-up in hysteroscopy and laparoscopy cases.

 

Objectives

It is clear that endoscopic surgeons should possess objective and measurable theoretical knowledge and practical ultrasound skills before undertaking scans in their perioperative endoscopic surgery practice. The DIGESTT course has been developed by ESGE and The Academy as part of their effort to harmonise ultrasound practice for endoscopic surgeons and to improve patient safety. All practical sessions using Transvaginal simulators and ultrasound machines aim to improve ultrasound skills, machine controls skills to ensure patients’ safety under the guidance of expert instructors. The programme will consist of brief lectures and hands-on-training sessions over the three days ending in mock-assessments. All participants will rotate through different stations undertaking different exercises at each station.

  • Improve imaging knowledge and skills for gynaecological endoscopic surgeons
  • Integrate imaging with endoscopic surgery practice to reduce surgical risks, increase patient safety and reduce unnecessary cost through provision of a quality imaging diploma
  • Develop an imaging educational curriculum for gynaecological endoscopic reproductive surgery on a long term basis
