Using Sound Waves for Enhanced Imaging

Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is a minimally invasive medical procedure that combines endoscopy with ultrasound to provide your doctor with clear images of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and adjacent internal organs to encompass:

  • Lining of the stomach
  • Walls of the upper and lower GI tracts
  • Gallbladder, pancreas, liver and lymph nodes

These detailed images serve as a better diagnostic tool than other imaging tests, such as CT scan, to allow your doctor to better assess digestive disorders and develop the right course of treatment.
