On behalf of the scientific committee, we have the pleasure to invite you to attend a seminar on “Leading Endoscopic Diagnosis and Treatment for Early Colorectal and Gastric Cancer” that is scheduled to be held at Intercontinental Hotel, Abu Dhabi on Friday February 24th, 2017. 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.
