Radial EUS of Pancreatico-Biliary System

  • Kazuya Akahoshi


EUS can evaluate the entire pancreas including the pancreatic duct, the neighboring organs including blood vessels, gall bladder, and the common bile duct from the stomach and duodenum. Therefore, indications of EUS are all conditions of pancreatico-biliary disease (Table 7.1).
