EUS

EUS IconAn endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) uses an endoscope (a long, flexible tube with a camera on the end) to view the throat, stomach and small intestine. An ultrasound attachment is used in conjunction with the scope and produces sound waves to create visual images of the pancreas and bile ducts. An EUS can be used to view the upper or lower GI tract.
