Researchers at Mayo Clinic are working to improve EUS and explore further applications of the technique. Specific efforts involve determining risk factors for EUS of the lower digestive tract, the role of endoscopic ultrasound in lung cancer staging, and the lack of association between tumor recurrence and EUS with fine-needle aspiration.
