Endoscopic Ultrasound Scan
Endoscopic ultrasound scan (EUS) is a technique whereby an ultrasound probe is inserted into the upper gastrointestinal tract, thereby allowing optimal images of the upper GI tract, pancreas, liver and bile duct. A variety of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures can be carried out by this method, and Mr Worthington is an acknowledged expert in the field. He organised the 2015 meeting of the Pancreatic Society of Great Britain and Ireland and was on the organising committee of the endoscopic ultrasound users group at congress at the same meeting. He performs over five hundred procedures each year and has developed a variety of techniques for the treatment of pancreaticobiliary pathology by this minimally-invasive method.
