Minimal Standard Terminology (MST) provides a list of terms for inclusion within computer recording systems for gastrointestinal endoscopic examination results
The Minimal Standard Terminology (MST) for gastrointestinal endoscopy is the result of a continuous work by WEO, the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE), the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and a large group of international collaborators. The Documentation & Standardization Committee has been in charge of this task, which has resulted in the present MST 3.0 version. While the original ideas of Prof Maratka, ESGE, ASGE and the Gaster project have been retained, some modifications have still been put in place in this revision.
