Endoscopic Ultrasound is an emerging diagnostic tool in the field of Gastrointestinal Surgery. Our review article focuses on role of EUS in staging cancers (esophageal, gastric, biliary and rectal), detection of bilio-pancreatic calculi and diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis. Potential for performing EUS based therapeutic interventions are been explored and looks promising from the initial reports.
