Our therapeutic endoscopists are recognized experts in the use of endoscopic ultrasound to visualize and treat pancreatic cysts. Under direct visualization with ultrasound technology, thin needles are passed into the cyst cavities in order to aspirate fluid for diagnosis, and in appropriate patients, inject alcohol or chemotherapeutic agents for treatment.
