Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) is a type of endoscopic examination.  It involves the insertion of a thin tube into the mouth and down into the stomach and the first part of the small intestine. At the tip of the tube is a small ultrasound probe that emits sound waves.  These sound waves bounce off of the surrounding structures, such as the stomach, small intestine, pancreas, bile ducts, and liver, and are recaptured to create black and white images that are then interpreted by your doctor. These images can be used to evaluate surrounding organs and perform biopsies of any abnormalities that are noted.
