Endoscopic Ultrasound (EU) Back to Procedures

What is an Endoscopic Ultrasound?

During an Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS), a small flexible tube is inserted in your mouth or anus while you are sedated to look for bile duct stones, enlarged lymph nodes, or tumors around the rectum, pancreas, and esophagus. The high-frequency sound waves show a complete picture of your gastrointestinal tract and nearby organs.
