ERCP also aids in obtaining tumor tissue cytology / biopsy from the bile duct to confirm the diagnosis in suspected cases of malignancy. This procedure is also useful in treating chronic pancreatitis and performing pseudocyst drainage in acute or chronic pancreatitis by placing plastic stents

EUS – Endoscopic Ultrasonography

EUS involves performing ultrasound examination with a probe attached at the tip of an endoscope. It allows detailed visualization of the walls of the esophagus, duodenum, stomach, as well as bile duct, the pancreas, lymph nodes, blood vessels other adjacent organs. This allows quicker and definitive diagnosis of various diseases, staging of cancers, and thus aids in management. This procedure is also helpful in procuring tissue for examination. It aids in difficult biliary and pancreatic therapeutic endoscopic procedures.

Capsule Endoscopy

This is a painless procedure in which the patient swallows a capsule with an inbuilt camera that takes photographs of the intestine and transmits them. The capsule endoscopy helps in diagnosis of various conditions, e.g., localizing the site and cause of intestinal bleeding, chronic diarrhea, polyps and tumors in the small intestine.
