Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) is an outpatient procedure that combines endoscopy with ultrasound technology. A special endoscope with an ultrasound attachment used during the EUS procedure to get a more detailed view of the gastrointestinal tract and surrounding tissue and organs.

Using EUS, your physician can diagnose conditions that can be missed by CT or MRI.

Your physician may use EUS to help diagnose many different digestive issues, including:

  • Evaluating masses of the esophagus, colon and gastrointestinal tract
  • Staging GI cancers and cancers in the surrounding organs
  • Diagnosing diseases of the pancreas
  • Diagnosing biliary stone disease
  • Fine needle aspiration to biopsy the digestive tract or surrounding organs
