EUS-Guided Fiducial Placement for Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy
Observational Model: Case-Only, Time Perspective: Prospective
Evaluation of the success and accuracy of endoscopic delivery of the Fiducials into pre-selected targets using dedicated EUS fiducial delivery system.
The outcome measure for this study is to determine: The successful delivery, to the targeted tissue,of the fiducials through the fiducial delivery system, The accuracy of the fiducial delivery into the targeted tissue and to see if the fiducials can be visualized via Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS), Fluoroscopy and/or CT scan. The success and accuracy of the delivery will be evaluated by Endoscopic Ultrasound, fluoroscopy and/or CT scan to determine if the fiducials are in the targeted tissue. The subject's Oncologist will inform the endoscopist of the targeted tissue that is to receive the fiducials.
