What is Endocsopic Ultrasound (EUS)le

EUS is a low-risk diagnostic procedure. It combines two procedures:

  • Endoscopy, during which your doctor inserts a thin, lighted tube into your body
  • Ultrasound, which uses high-frequency sound waves to obtain detailed images

EUS uses a special endoscope with an ultrasound probe attached. We use EUS to evaluate and diagnose upper and lower digestive tract disorders. The procedure takes approximately 30minutes. You can return home when it is finished.
