What Is an Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)?

The endoscopic procedure includes two things:-

  1. Endoscopy — use of a scope to see the lining of the gastrointestinal.
  2. Ultrasound —use of Ultrasound probe which uses high sound waves frequencies see the images of internal organs and bowel wall.

A flexible thin tube with a light and camera is used for EUS, at the end of the tube, a  probe is also attached for the ultrasound.

  1. There are two types of EUS

A. Upper

To see the Esophagus(the tube that Links mouth with your stomach), stomach, small intestine, pancreases, bile ducts lymph’s nodes and tumors upper EUS is done.

B. Lower

To see the Esophagus(the tube that Links mouth with your stomach), stomach, small intestine, pancreases, bile ducts lymph’s nodes and tumors upper EUS is done.

What Is the Purpose of an Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS)?

The purpose of an endoscopic ultrasound is if the gastroenterologist finds any abnormality in the upper endoscopy (stomach, small intestine) or in a detailed x-ray test. The sample of tissues is also taken, which easily help to find any abnormality and problems and to make the process quite and painless we use sedation.

Help with the staging of cancer.

There are various stages to cancer and how deadly it all depends upon at what stage it is, knowing it from outside is hard so endoscopic is the only way left. It easily finds the cancer stage, size and its exact position which is very helpful for the oncologist for giving you the right treatment.

Endoscopic detect cancer on other organs like:

  1. Esophageal (the tube that links your mouth and stomach), this is the only passage to your stomach so it becomes very easy for us to see if any stage of tumor or cancer budding here or not. The camera gives the in-depth view of all esophagus.

Cancer has the property to spread so we also see from the endoscopy does it spread to organs like

  • Pancreatic
  • Lung
  • Other
  • bowel

2. Find lesions in the wall of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract

In the wall of the GI tract with the upper endoscopy, small lesions can easily find out.

Well, all the lesions are not harmful but they are all prone to cancer and can run you into troubles. Endoscopic ultrasound gives the clear pictures. The doctor does bioscopy to take the sample of the lesion for further evolution.

3. Look at the bile ducts, gallbladder, and liver

  • Lesions or stones

4. Look at the pancreas

  • Chronic pancreatitis
  • Pancreatic Cysts

5. Find the cause of fecal incontinence

Anal sphincter has the two layers inner and outer EUS evaluate each in detail and give the picture to any unresponsive thing.
