抄録

Endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) provides high spatial and contrast resolution and is a useful tool for evaluating the pancreato-biliary regions. Recently, contrast-enhanced harmonic EUS (CH-EUS) has been used to evaluate lesion vascularity, especially for the diagnosis of pancreatic tumors. CH-EUS adds two major advantages when diagnosing pancreatic cystic lesions (PCL). First, it can differentiate between mural nodules and mucous clots, thereby improving the accurate classification of PCL. Second, it helps with evaluation of the malignant potential of PCL, especially of intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms by revealing the vascularity in the mural nodules and solid components. This review discusses the use and limitations of CH-EUS for the diagnosis of PCL.
