Endoscopic Ultrasonograpy (EUS)
A tiny ultrasound transducer incorporated at the tip of the endoscope generates high-frequency sound waves, enabling the endoscopist to see into the bowel wall and look at surrounding organs such as the pancreas and bile duct with high spatial resolution.
Interventional EUS applications include fine needle aspiration biopsy, pseudocyst puncture and drainage, and celiac ganglion blockade.
