L’écho-endoscopie au Canada. État des lieux en 2004

TITLE
EUS in Canada in 2004

ABSTRACT

The use of EUS in Canada has long been confined to a few university centers. There are multiple possible explanations for this: among these, difficulties in training in new endoscopie techniques on a continent poorly equipped in EUS and the absence of an early validation of new techniques of investigation by official agencies. The greater mobility of North-American physicians, may also explain the fact that some centers are equipped but do not always have the required experts on site.

Although still present in limited numbers, we have here the opportunity to give a progress report on the status of EUS centers in Canada.

With the help of the companies Pentax and Carsen (Olympus representative in Canada), we were able to obtain information on 16 centers equipped with EUS probes from either of these 2 manufacturers. A standardized questionnaire, previously developed by the French and Belgian Digestive EUS clubs, was sent to all the known centers and 8 have answered to date, either by providing their real activity numbers or by giving an estimate over the period of September 2004. This article does not show the results of the entire questionnaire insofar as all the items have not been fully reported.

If sixteen centers are currently known in Canada to have at least one instrument, only 11 employ at least one clearly identified endoscopist responsible for this activity, while the other centers are still awaiting one.
