The American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) has announced Techniques and Innovations in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (TIGE) into AGA's prestigious portfolio of scientific publications. Previously known as Techniques in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, established in 1999, AGA is now officially affiliated with TIGE and aims to provide actionable research to GI endoscopists in an easily accessible, online-only format.
TIGE will continue to be led by co-editors-in-chief Dr. Vinay Chandrasekhara, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota; Dr. Michael Kochman, AGAF, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia; and a hand-selected editorial board of leaders in GI endoscopy.
Published quarterly, TIGE will feature original research and expert commentary answering "what's next" for diagnostic techniques and disease management. Unique to TIGE, each issue includes topically organised reviews on hot-button issues along with accompanying illustrations, case studies and videos. The journal outlines practical ‘how-to’ strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of digestive diseases.
Upcoming themed issues will focus on topics at the forefront of GI endoscopy, including: Lumen-Apposing Metal Stents in GI Endoscopy (coming February 2020); Artificial Intelligence in GI; Bariatric and Metabolic Endoscopy; Endoprosthetics for Luminal Obstruction; Advanced Imaging in GI Diseases; and Women's Issues in Endoscopy.
TIGE joins AGA's three existing peer-reviewed journals: Gastroenterology (the leading journal in the field), Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, and Cellular and Molecular Gastroenterology and Hepatology.
