BACKGROUND:Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) can reliably diagnose and stage pancreatic cancer but is less competent for the differentiation between vascular compression (VC) and invasion (VI).AIM:Prospective comparison of linear EUS with/without three-dimensional (3D) EUS for vessel involvement in pancreatic cancer to evaluate the feasibility of linear 3D ultrasound.MATERIAL AND METHODS:Linear echoendoscopy was used to identify the pancreatic tumor, the tumor-vessel relation and for EUS-FNA to… CONTINUE READING
