With the advent of neo-adjuvant therapies for diseases such as pancreatic cancer, most patients require a tissue diagnosis before initiating treatment. Endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-FNA) and fine needle biopsy (FNB) have evolved to become indispensable diagnostic sampling tools in patients with gastrointestinal tumors.
This web page includes physician lectures, case studies, best practice procedural and sampling techniques for EUS-FNA and EUS-FNB.
