The utility of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) in the diagnosis of pancreatic diseases has been established already, and EUS is now thought to be an essential technique. Because electronic scanning EUS produces the same or better B-mode images, it will replace mechanical scanning EUS in the near future. Furthermore, electronic scanning EUS will make full use of many software programs such as color Doppler flow imaging, power Doppler flow imaging, three-dimensional imaging, and real-time tissue elastography. In this report, we will outline the various kinds of diagnostic imaging that are possible with electronic scanning EUS.
