BayCare adds endoscopy processor

CLEARWATER – Patients in the Tampa Bay area needing advanced diagnostic endoscopic ultrasounds now may benefit from new technology which can mean less time in a procedure and a more detailed diagnosis thanks to a new endoscopy processor at three BayCare hospitals that offers the latest, most precise imaging technology.

Located at Morton Plant, St. Anthony’s and St. Joseph’s hospitals, the new endoscopy processor, also called an EUS or Endoscopic Ultrasound, is used if a standard endoscopy exam has determined the need for further investigation.

EUS may be used to evaluate stages of cancer, chronic pancreatitis or other disorders of the pancreas. It is used to study: abnormalities or tumors in organs, including the gallbladder and liver; bumps in the intestinal wall; or the muscles of the lower rectum and anal canal. EUS also is used in diagnosis and staging of tumors of the esophagus, and in the diagnosis and staging of certain tumors of the chest cavity.

The EUS technology offers radial and linear scanning. The 360 degree scanning offers the advantage of a full panoramic view and a Doppler functionality to display blood flow dynamics inside the blood vessels. This adds valuable information to the examination, simplifying the orientation within the gastrointestinal tract and therefore speeding up the examination time.

The linear scanning technology provides a scanning range of 180 degrees. Linear scanning technology is designed to continuously visualize the progression of needle insertion into the tissue when performing a EUS-Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) procedure to collect tissue samples or other therapeutic procedures.
