Abstract

Application of endoscopic ultrasound technology has contributed significantly to improved detection and diagnosis of small pancreatic cancer lesions. Endoscopic ultrasound is now used in routine clinical management as well as in various screening protocols for early detection of pancreatic cancer in certain high-risk groups. In this review article, we summarize the current state of the technology and its application in the early detection strategy for pancreatic cancer.
