EUS endoscopy Ultrasound

The Endoscopic Ultrasound, or EUS, is a versatile procedure that has a variety of uses when combined with other procedures or screenings. It utilizes sound waves to map out a detailed image of the inside of the abdomen or chest, and is a minimally invasive procedure unlike alternatives such as exploratory surgery. EUS can be used to:

  • Assess tumor depth
  • Determine extent (or stage) of cancer
  • Determine if cancer has spread
  • Provide precise information on small-cell cancer cells to guide treatment
  • Evaluate abnormal findings from imaging tests, such as cysts of the pancreas
  • Permit direct injection of medication to the pancreas, liver, and other organs

This procedure can be critical in detecting colorectal cancer, along with cancer of the lungs, esophagus, and stomach cancers. It can also be used to detect lymphoma, Bile Duct Stones, Neuroendocrine tumors, Barrett’s esophagus, and pancreatitis.

EUS is an out-patient procedure that is handled well by most patients with few complications. Those who have had abdominal surgery that changed their anatomy, such as a gastric bypass, may not be eligible for EUS treatment.
