Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is a new imaging technique, playing an important role in the diagnosis and therapy of a wide range of gastrointestinal diseases. Recently, both linear and radial type electronic scanning EUS techniques have been widely applied in clinical settings. This book concentrates primarily on EUS with electronic scanning echoendoscopes, with an introduction into the basic knowledge of EUS, the imaging diagnoses with EUS as well as the EUS-guided interventions. It contains a summary of the authors' rich experience with the application of EUS, as well as the current views and developments in the field. With more than 1300 superior-quality endosonographic images and illustrations, especially delicate 3D anatomical illustrations, this book will greatly help students to understand and interpret the EUS images.
