About Endoscopic Ultrasounds
With an endoscopic ultrasound (or EUS) our providers look at your upper and lower digestive tract, including the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, colon and rectum.
EUS provides detailed images of the digestive tract to diagnose certain conditions and evaluate abnormalities detected in previous tests. Results are used to help determine which treatment is right for you.
The endoscope is a thin, flexible tube with a built-in ultrasound probe. Ultrasound uses sound waves to create visual images. Your doctor passes the endoscope through your mouth or anus to reach the area of your digestive tract, either upper or lower, that needs to be examined.
