EUS water stand-off balloons
Water stand-off balloons (EUS balloons) are indispensable when making an endoscopy. In the case of an ultrasound endoscope, the tip is provided with an echo crystal. This echo crystal sends and receives inaudible echo signals, whereby body structures are visibly imaged.
The EUS balloon is placed around the echo crystal and is then filled with water. This way optimal contact is made with, for example, the esophageal wall. In addition, the water in the balloon ensures that the echo signals are properly transmitted and collected. The water stand-off balloon is thus, together with the use of water, in fact a contact medium, just like Ultrasound gel is for the normal ultrasound diagnosis.
What is an ultrasound endoscopy?
In an endoscopy, the doctor inserts a steerable tube (the endoscope) into the body via mouth or anus. This allows him to inspect the inside of the esophagus, stomach or intestines. In ultrasound endoscopy, an ultrasound device is placed on the end of the endoscope. This device emits inaudible sound waves. The echoes of these sound waves reflect in the body. After reflection, the echoes of the sound waves are collected and converted into visible images on a monitor. Because the sound waves penetrate deep into the tissue, it is possible to get information about deeper layers of the intestinal wall and the organs around the intestine.
There are two types of echo endoscopies. The ultrasound endoscopy that is performed by mouth examines the stomach, pancreas or esophagus. There is also an ultrasound endoscopy that takes place via the anus. The doctor can then inspect the anus, rectum and / or large intestine.
