Abstract

New technology has combined the endoscope with ultrasound in an effort to enhance the visualization of the gastrointestinal tract. With a modified standard endoscope that has an ultrasound transducer built into the tip, high frequency ultrasonic beams can be targeted in close proximity to existing lesions. This results in better quality resolution which enhances the evaluation of the targeted lesion. In addition, esophageal wall thickness can be evaluated and assessed as to its role in esophageal function.
