Stomach endoscopic ultrasound is a study of the walls of an organ using a combined technology that combines endoscopic access and ultrasound scanning. It has diagnostic significance in the detection of submucosal tumors, polyps, erosive and ulcerative defects, deformations of the gastric wall from the outside. Endoscopic ultrasound allows you to clearly examine each of the five layers of the stomach wall (which is not available for traditional endoscopy and transabdominal ultrasound) and determine the depth of the lesion. Under the control of endoscopic ultrasound, minimally invasive interventions can be performed: mucosal resection, laser destruction, photodynamic therapy, etc.
