Abstract

Endoscopy has become a valuable tool for the diagnosis and treatment of many different gastrointestinal diseases. Several techniques have been developed to improve the impact of endoscopy on the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic disorders. New methods, such as pancreatoscopy using thin miniscopes, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), and miniprobe intraductal ultrasound (IDUS), have been introduced for the diagnosis and treatment of several disorders of the pancreas. This article focuses on the established as well as more recently developed endoscopic techniques in the treatment and diagnosis of inflammatory pancreatic diseases and pancreatic cancer.
