Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a minimally invasive procedure that gastroenterologists use to evaluate and diagnose diseases affecting the digestive (GI) system and lungs. The EUS uses a special type of endoscope to produce sound waves to create detailed images of the digestive tract and chest as well as nearby organs like the pancreas, liver, and lymph nodes.

Your doctor may recommend endoscopic ultrasound if you have abdominal pain or other symptoms of a GI condition such as cancer, pancreatitis, pancreatic cysts, Barrett’s esophagus, bile duct stones, or sarcoidosis.
