Endoscopic Ultrasonography

Endoscopic Ultrasonography (EUS), also known as endoscopic ultrasound, is just one of the advanced diagnostic systems that The Hospitals of Providence has available to help physicians more accurately screen for and diagnose a variety of conditions. EUS has a variety of applications and is specifically valuable in the diagnosis and staging of gastrointestinal cancers.

For patients, the ability to have more information sooner about a diagnosis can often make an important difference to a successful outcome.

  • Unexplained upper abdominal pain after an extensive work-up

  • Acute or chronic pancreatitis
  • Pancreatic cysts
  • Pancreatic fluid collections
  • Unexplained abnormal liver tests or jaundice
  • Suspected bile duct stones, mass or obstruction

    • Esophageal
    • Gastric
