Figure 6: EUS-guided treatment of cystic tumor in the head of pancreas. A: CT scan shows about 3.5 cm sized cystic tumor in the head. This lesion was treated by EUS-guided ethanol lavage and paclitaxel injection (070315); B: Follow-up CT scan which was taken 5 months after treatment clearly shows marked size decrease after therapy (070818); C: About 3 years later, CT scan demonstrated complete disappearance of cystic tumor (100617). EUS: endoscopic ultrasound; CT: computed tomography.
