Endosonography for suspected obstructive jaundice with no definite pathology on ultrasonography
Journal of the Formosan Medical Association
Background/Purpose: Ultrasonography (US) cannot demonstrate all the etiologies of biliary tract dilatation in patients with jaundice. Thus, we evaluated the etiologic yield of endosonography (EUS) for suspected obstructive jaundice when no definite pathology was found on US.
