Endoscopic Ultrasound

Endoscopic Ultrasound

Minimally Invasive Ultrasound Technology

Little Company of Mary Hospital offers a minimally invasive technology that uses ultrasound imaging technology to inspect the digestive tract and surrounding tissues and organs for abnormalities, including cancer.

 

The procedure, Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) uses a small flexible tube called an endoscope, most commonly used in upper endoscopies or colonoscopies that have an ultrasound probe built-in the tip of the device. While sedated, a tube is inserted into the mouth or rectum and the physician observes a 180-degree video image of the inside of the digestive tract. A second monitor displays 360-degree ultrasound images of the structures and organs surrounding the digestive tract in high resolution.

 

The technology allows the physician to precisely examine the area in a more magnified and clearer view than ever  before. The entire procedure takes up to one hour, which allows  you to go home the same day.

 

Benefits of EUS for patients:

  • More advanced imaging than CT-scans or MRIs 
  • Less invasive biopsy capability for rapid diagnoses 
  • Two certified EUS specialists available for flexible scheduling
