"This book is valuable for all levels of EUS training. There are other EUS introductory books, but this one strikes a nice balance between presenting basic technique and providing a wide-ranging discussion of diagnostic evaluation and advanced intervention. The online features have made this book one of my primary references during my EUS training." - Joseph Auer, AB, MM, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine) 4 star Doody rating!
