IF Update SQL Command

I have the below Trigger to update a Date stamp column with any change that happens to this record.
Problem is we want it to only time stamp when a change is done to the Geometry field.
How would i modify it? I have used and IF UPDATE Command in another trigger. Would that be an option?


   AFTER INSERT, UPDATE, delete
AS 
BEGIN

declare @NewId int =  (select Parcel_ID from Inserted) 
		SET NOCOUNT ON;
	Update Parcel
		   set dbo.Parcel.GIS_lastUpdate_Date = CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
	   where Parcel_ID =  @NewId

Open in new window


I would like to say
If (geometry) is updated then
Update Parcel
               set dbo.Parcel.GIS_lastUpdate_Date = CURRENT_TIMESTAMP
         where Parcel_ID =  @NewId

I'm just not sure the syntax.
Thanks
