Same results for my wife. When the GI doctor did the ERCP procedure, he found some growths in the bile duct and collected brushings which turned out to be atypical.

The EUS will help define the mass better. When they do the EUS, if they find a mass, they will do fine needle aspiration and collect biopsies of the mass for analysis.

A CT scan is really the protocol for this also. As stated before Richard, it is important that the person that interprets the EUS and CT scan results knows what they are looking for.

What health care center are you having these procedures performed at?
