Olympus is a proud sponsor of the Women in Interventional Endoscopy Association (WIE) and we are committed to supporting women interested in moving forward and increasing their visibility in the world of interventional endoscopy. Through our sponsorship, Olympus looks forward to the WIE educational programs, with the shared goal of advancing interventional endoscopy procedures, such as endoscopic ultrasound.
Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) combines ultrasound technology with endoscopy to gain an internal vantage point. While conventional endoscopy only provides a view of the innermost lining of the digestive tract, or its wall, the addition of ultrasound allows the physician to see beyond that wall to visualize all five layers of the GI tract as well as surrounding tissue and organs.
Olympus offers a full EUS product portfolio of processors and echoendoscopes to meet your needs and preferences. These products are used for therapeutic and interventional applications such as tissue sample collection, cyst drainage, biopsies of lesions/lymph nodes and injection for pain management.
