Abstract

ABSTRACT

Standard imaging techniques using a radical scanning echoendoscope are summarized to facilitate the attainment of expertise in biliopancreatic endoscopic ultrasonography and to promote the widespread use of this diagnostic tool. Typical images of the biliopancreatic system and neighboring organs obtained by scanning from the stomach, duodenal bulb, and descending portion of the duodenum are shown in a sequential manner. Two methods of scanning from the descending portion of the duodenum, which is considered to be the most difficult, are presented (i.e. the Longitudinal Method and the Transverse Method). In addition, settings of the image control functions and the monitor are also detailed.
