At Guthrie our Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) specialists are fellowship-trained in using the latest technologies to diagnose diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, bile ducts and pancreas. Our specialists have a combined 35 years of experience with cancer diagnosis and staging. EUS uses endoscopy, the insertion of a thin probe, and high frequency ultrasound to obtain images of the digestive tract. EUS revolutionizes evaluation and diagnosis of both upper and lower digestive tract disorders by providing more detailed images for more accurate diagnosis and preoperative cancer staging. Endoscopic Ultrasound is a low-risk procedure.
