- Rectal endoscopic ultrasound is a test that lets your doctor look at the walls of your lower gastrointestinal tract. This test does not use X-rays or other radiation.
- The doctor uses a thin, lighted tube called an endoscope, or scope, and gently puts the scope into your rectum to the area to be examined and the scope can take pictures of organs and tissues.
- During the procedure, your doctor can take samples of tissue that can be checked for cancer or other problems.
- Tell your doctor all the medicines, vitamins, supplements, and herbal remedies you take as you need to stop taking certain medications before the procedure.
