Endoscopic ultrasound

Also known as: EUS
Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS). In this test, a small ultrasound probe at the end of the endoscope is placed down the throat to the chest area. The ultrasound can help detect cancer behind the breast bone or in lymph nodes in the area. EUS may also be used to guide a biopsy of the lung, lymph nodes or other areas.
