Diagnostic EUS and EUS-FNA/FNB Advanced Course

Full immersion in interventional GI endoscopy

The EUS course will focus on the technical aspects of normal anatomy, indications of EUS, the technical aspect of EUS-FNA/FNB, potential complications, results, and the therapeutic impact of this technique. 

Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) has now become an integral component in the evaluation of GI diseases, initially from a diagnostic perspective, but increasingly from a therapeutic one.

This course will focus on the basic EUS technique, the evaluation of common biliary-pancreatic conditions, including cystic and solid lesions of the pancreas, as well as acute and chronic pancreatitis, submucosal lesions, and mediastinal masses. 

This course offers a unique opportunity to learn about modern approaches to a wide range of clinical scenarios and to train for the management of digestive diseases.
