Basic Scanning Techniques of Linear EUS
The linear echoendoscope (EG-530UT) has a curved transducer facing on one side. This provides a 120° sector scanning ultrasound view. The working channel opens just above the transducer and the instruments (commonly needle) can be seen on the ultrasound view. This permits EUS guided biopsies and interventions to be performed. The channel is wide (3.8 mm) and allows passage of instruments up to 10 Fr. diameter through the endoscope.
