AbstractEndoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) is currently an integral tool for work-up of pancreaticobiliary neoplasms. Tissue acquisition by EUS is possible with fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology and histology. However, FNA still carries some limitations and risks of complications. The use of image-enhanced EUS may improve detection and characterization of pancreaticobiliary neoplasms and complement FNA. The present article aims to provide an overview of the current development of contrast-enhanced imaging and elastography in EUS and their potential application in the diagnosis of pancreaticobiliary diseases.
