Intraoperative and laparoscopic ultrasound during pancreatic surgery



  • Within this chapter we explore the current uses of ultrasound in pancreatic surgery. The first section is dedicated to the discussion of proper preoperative patient setup, intraoperative ultrasound technology, normal anatomic findings, and general indications for use. The second portion of the chapter focuses on disease-specific indications and the ultrasonographic findings associated with these conditions. We conclude by briefly touching on emerging uses of IOUS in pancreatic surgery.
