Endoscopic Ultrasound - An imaging procedure which uses an endoscope (a long, flexible, lighted tube with an attached camera), along with ultrasound waves, to examine internal parts of the body and produce images of surrounding tissues. The endoscope (with a transducer on its tip) is inserted into a body cavity (such as the mouth or rectum) in order to get close to the organ(s) being examined to obtain detailed pictures. Endoscopic ultrasound, also called EUS, is commonly used to diagnose and stage gastrointestinal (digestive tract) and lung diseases.
