SE is standard error; EGD is esophagogastroduodenoscopy.

NOTES: Rates are based on the civilian population as of July 1. Discharges are from nonfederal short-stay hospitals. Visits are to hospital-based and freestanding ambulatory surgery centers. To avoid double counting, visits that resulted in a hospital admission are excluded. Rates are for at least one procedure listed. EGD is International Classification of Diseases, ninth revision, Clinical Modification (ICD–9–CM) procedure codes 45.13 or 45.16, and colonoscopy is codes 45.23 or 45.25. (See Appendix II, International Classification of Diseases, ninth revision, Clinical Modification. Also see Tables 103 and XI.)
