Pancreatic Cysts

Improved Patient Management Through Highly Accurate Cyst Assessment

Panc Image no Title.png

Needle-based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy (nCLE) with Cellvizio allows you to see the cyst wall at the microscopic level, in real time, for the first time through a high-speed flexible microscope threaded inside a 19-gauge needle during EUS-FNA procedures.

EUS-FNA plus Cellvizio can help in clinical practice by: 

  • Improving the characterization for indeterminate cysts3, 6, 7
  • Confirming the EUS impression, when cytological confirmation is missing3, 6, 7
  • Providing high specificity and inter and intraobserver agreement3
  • Reducing the rate of surgery4

Hear Dr Divyesh Sejpal talk about the value of nCLE in Pancreatic Cysts

Initial and continuous training programs are available to facilitate integration of needle-based Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy into your clinical practice.
