In endoscopic ultrasound tomography (UT), the ultrasound probe positioned in the stomach has direct access to the pancreatic region. In first experiences, 62 patients were investigated by EUT . 22 of them had a pancreatic infection. EUT seems to be a new method being a valuable complement to conventional UT with a high diagnostic potential and with broad possibilities of application. The increased resolution of structural details of pathological alterations could be of diagnostic value.
