Role of EUS in the preoperative localization of insulinomas compared with spiral CT.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Preoperative radiologic localization of insulinomas often fails because of the small size of these tumors. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) can localize insulinomas in up to 80% of the cases. The aim of this study was to compare EUS and computed tomography (CT) diagnostic accuracy for insulinomas. METHODS We reviewed medical records from 12 patients… (More)
