Yes, I am still her, but it takes some time to type a complete answer.
Yes, they would, although more because of gallstones that have Carly Parker Tit Staringassed into and may be stuck in the bile duct.
There are a couple of common possible reasons for getting an EUS in this situation. A gallstone that may be in the bile duct is one of the reasons. If there was a concern about gallstones in the gallbladder, then a standard ultrasound would be able to see them well and an EUS would not be necessary. But since an EUS was recommended, the issue would be a gallstone may be in the bile duct
It is also possible that there could be a filling defect that is worrisome for a lump that is located deep within the liver,, but there are only a few locations within the liver that an EUS can see significantly better than a standard ultrasound.
There also may be a suggestion that there may be a lump around the bile duct that is squeezing the bile duct, and this area can be seen better by EUS than with a standard ultrasound.In this location, it would not be any lump within the liver, but possibly within the pancreas or the soft tssue between the liver and pancreas.
Since he mentioned a gallstone, the first scenario is most likely.
If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
