By chosing either Upper GI Endoscopy or Colonoscopy you will be presented with a cascade of up to six questions to help identifiy the clinical situation (clinical scenario or indication) that was evaluated by the panel of experts which most closely resembles your patient.

As you proceed through the questions, the summary of answers to previous questions will appear at the top of each page.

Different buttons at the bottom of the page allow you to back up in your choices if you realize you have entered erroneous data. Index will bring you to the initial choice between Upper GI Endoscopy and Colonoscopy. Clicking on Back will go to the previous question related to your patients situation.

Each choice for the question requested is preceded by a red arrow for indicating the situation or characteristics corresponding to your patient.

This means that you are not sure that the newest page will come in front of your browser. This is specialy annoying when a site suffered some errors. Some people may still complain the site to be error prone, even when it has been corrected. The only solution is then to empty the casches.
