Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Endoscopic ultrasounds (EUS) are frequently used on patients with oncological conditions for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. In addition, EUS produce high-quality images and can be used alongside other techniques (e.g., contrast and elastography imaging). In addition, EUS-guided fine needle biopsy (FNB) is the gold standard for the histopathological diagnosis of gastrointestinal tumors. In this technique, many dedicated needles are used.

Therapeutic EUS favors biliopancreatic endoscopy and does not require invasive surgical procedures. Indeed, therapeutic EUS is becoming more popular, with techniques such as EUS-guided biliary drainage, the creation of digestive anastomosis using lumen apposing metal stents (LAMS), fiducial placement, vascular therapies, or radiofrequency. In this issue of Cancers, we will cover all EUS-related topics in cancer research with a focus on new technologies and future perspectives. Multicenter studies and prospective research articles will be prioritized.
