Endoscopic ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging give more details because of the cystic character of this mass than abdomen ultrasonography and CT (4, 5).
Cost-effectiveness of endoscopic ultrasonography, magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography in patients suspected of pancreaticobiliary disease.
Diagnostic algorithm consists of multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasonography, endoscopic ultrasonography, positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET CT), histopathologic and immunohistochemical methods.
Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) was performed by linear echo with frequency of 10 MHZ.
Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS), which was developed in the early 1980s, has become a valuable imaging modality to visualize the gastrointestinal luminal wall and its surrounding structures, including the pancreatobiliary system.
Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) demonstrated that there was a honeycomb-like hypoechoic structure measuring 60 x 10 mm located in the submucosa with a heterogeneous echo pattern and revealed that the muscularis propria was intact (Figure 1(b)).
The probe during usual ultrasonography is placed on the skin, whereas the probe during endoscopic ultrasonography is inserted in the lumen of the stomach.
Endoscopic ultrasonography confirmed the presence of the nodule in the pancreatic tail, but transgastric, fine-needle aspiration of the lesion could not establish a diagnosis.
Staging of the lesions was completed by CT scan and/or endoscopic ultrasonography if necessary.
Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is thought to be one of the most reliable and efficient diagnostic modalities for pancreatobiliary diseases because of its superiority to any other modalities with respect to spatial resolution [2, 3].
In the study, 287 patients with early-stage pancreatic cancer received initial CT plus endoscopic ultrasonography as initial staging work-up.
The diagnosis is based on endoscopy, contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) and endoscopic ultrasonography. The latter is the only method that can identify the intramural nature of the tumour, with a diagnostic precision of 92%.
