Endoscopic ultransonography is a highly effective tool that combines two tried and true diagnostic modalities: ultrasound and endoscopy. In EUS, a traditional fiberoptic endoscope is fitted with a miniature sonographic transducer, allowing penetration that provides extraordinarily precise sonograms, and is now also able to biopsy mass lesions. It is particularly efficient in screening for gynecologic and for gastrointestinal diseases. The ability of EUS to diagnose the spectrum of GI disorders, from gallstones to ulcerative diase to polyps and tumors, is quickly making it standard equipment in the gastroenterologist's office.About the Author:
