Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cysts: Endoscopic Ultrasound With Fine Needle Aspiration (EUS/FNA), Direct Visualization, and Confocal Laser-induced Endomicroscopy—A Pilot Study
Data will be analyzed descriptively to include patient characteristics, procedural
variables, and outcomes.
Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Prospective
Assess the yield of combination modalities in the diagnosis of pancreatic cysts using EUS/FNA, Fiber optics (direct visualization probe), and prototype needle based confocal laser-induced endomicroscopy miniprobe (nCLE)
Data will be analyzed descriptively to include patient characteristics, procedural variables, and outcomes.
From the date of imaging until follow up for 6 months to two years.
