In Vivo nCLE Study in the Pancreas With Endosonography of Cystic Tumors

The primary aim of the study is to define interpretation criteria to differentiate mucinous
from non-mucinous cysts and classify more precisely the cysts. Once these criteria have been
defined, the diagnostic parameters of nCLE in differentiating the different types of cysts
and the reproducibility of these criteria will be assessed.

Inclusion Criteria:

- Patients scheduled for an EUSFNA procedure of a pancreatic cyst,

- Patients aged 18 years or older,

- Patients is under surgical consideration for management of the cyst

- Patients have provided written informed consent for the study

Exclusion Criteria:

- Allergy to fluorescein

- Pregnancy or breast-feeding
