Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

Endoscopic ultrasound is a very specialized examination which refers to the process of inserting a long flexible tube through the mouth to visualize the digestive tract. This ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to depict organs and structures within the body such as the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, aorta, etc.

EUS is a modern and high accuracy diagnostic technique for the examination of the hollow and solid organs of the upper digestive system that combines endoscopy with ultrasound.

More specifically, it is the most accurate imaging method of distinguishing the five layers of the intestinal wall and pancreas and offers ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy and Fine Needle Biopsy (FNB) to inaccessible organs such as the pancreas, which is difficult to perform with other methods.
