Evaluation of Pancreas and Other Abdominal Organs by Colonoscopic Ultrasound
We report a case where colonoscopic ultrasound was used to evaluate the pancreas. In this case the usual method of evaluating the body of the pancreas by upper gastrointestinal ultrasound was unsuccessful because of the presence of a large hiatal hernia. The other abdominal organs evaluated by colonoscopic ultrasound included the ileo-cecal valve, kidney, liver spleen and prostate. To our knowledge this is the first case where ultrasonic colonoscope has been used to evaluate the body of the pancreas.
