Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopa Pancreatogram (ERCP)
Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatogra (ERCP) enables physicians to examine the pancreatic and bile ducts. An endoscope is put through the mouth and gently moved down the throat into the stomach and the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). The small opening in the duodenum is identified, and a plastic tube is passed through the endoscope and into this opening. Dye is injected and X-rays are taken to study the ducts of the pancreas and liver.

Endoscopic Ultra Sound
Endoscopic Ultra Sound (EUS), allows the physician to examine the esophageal and stomach linings as well as the walls of the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. EUS is also used to study the lungs, liver, gall bladder and pancreas. An endoscope (thin flexible tube with a built-in miniature ultrasound probe) is passed through the patient’s mouth or anus area for exam. Sound waves from the ultrasound are used to create visual images of the digestive tract.
