Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS): What You Should Know
What is an EUS?
EUS is a minimally invasive technique that uses a high-definition probe to provide very clear images inside the digestive tract.
How an EUS is performed
EUS uses a high frequency ultrasound to create an image of the wall of the esophagus, stomach, intestine, or rectum.
Possible risks of an EUS
As with standard endoscopy, risks include events related to intravenous sedation, such as allergic reactions, drug interactions, respiratory depression, and hypotension.
