Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)

  • What is Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)?

    An endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a safe and non-invasive diagnostic tool used to visualise the lining and walls of the GI tract and neighbouring organs including the pancreas, liver and gallbladder. It uses a thin and flexible tube, called an endoscope, which is inserted into the mouth or the anus. EUS generates enhanced and detailed images of the digestive tract, and allows the evaluation of GI abnormalities.

  • Your doctor might recommend EUS examination to evaluate and diagnose the causes of your persistent abdominal pain or your abnormal weight loss. It can also be used to determine the stages of cancer, to examine gallstones or liver tumours and to study other abnormal growths in the bile duct.

    Doctors also use EUS to evaluate diseases affecting the pancreas including chronic pancreatitis, and to determine the causes of bowel incontinence (loss of bowel control).

    EUS is also used to study previously diagnosed lumps or lesions. Your doctor can use EUS to obtain tissue samples to examine these lumps and lesions in order to determine their origin and therefore choose the best treatment for you.
