Dr Uzair :

Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.

Dr Uzair :

Endoscopes can not reach the pancreas, so that can not be assessed by endoscopy.

Dr Uzair :

For the pancreas, the best modality will be a CT scan with contrast.

Dr Uzair :

But that should be preceded by serum amylase and lipase blood tests to see if there is actually anything wrong with the pancreas.

Dr Uzair :

Do you have more queries?

Dr Uzair :

You just rated bad service?

Dr Uzair :

If you have more queries and are not satisfied, let me know.
