Endosonography

General Information

Endosonography is a special form of ultrasound examination (sonography). In this case, this is not carried out from the outside through the skin, but from the inside. As a result, certain organs can be displayed better and more sharply, in some cases organs can only be subjected to an ultrasound examination and there is also the possibility of ultrasound-targeted biopsy.

Special endoscopes are used for this, which have an ultrasound head at the tip. We have 2 types of devices at our disposal, which are selected depending on the indication. On the one hand there are devices that enable a 360° view, on the other hand there are puncture devices that enable tissue samples to be taken from tumors or unclear lesions.
