On behalf of the scientific committee it is an honour to invite you to the 12th EURO EUS meeting in the beautiful city of Marseille.
In concordance with the high standards set during the previous editions of this symposium we have assembled a top team of international leading experts in Endoscopic Ultrasound, endoscopy and related fields.
Traditionally, the first day will be dedicated to high quality live transmission of cases from the new endoscopy unit at the Paoli Calmette Institute.
This year we have focused our attention on pancreatic diseases.
We will present novel treatments for pancreatic cancer, scrutinize the revised Sendai criteria for the management of IPMN and will tackle the difficult problem posed by autoimmune pancreatitis. The role of EUS in pancreatic cancer will be put into perspective.
A practical approach to FNA and to pancreatic fluid collection drainage will be presented.
Elastography and the use of contrast have become an integral part of the EUS examination. Our world renowned experts will update on this topics.
We can look forward to a challenging and exciting high level meeting, a Euro EUS tradition.
