If however, the CT does not show a mass and the clinical suspicion for pancreatic cancer is high, then an EUS should be performed at which time an FNA can also be performed [25, 26]. Finally, and of great consolation for our patients and healthcare providers is the finding of a normal EUS when searching for a pancreatic cancer. EUS is associated with the best negative predictive value in patients with suspected pancreatic cancer [27–30]. Klapman and colleagues retrospectively reviewed nearly 700 patients with suspected pancreatic cancer who underwent EUS over a 4-year period.

Vascular adherence was defined as tumor adherence requiring vascular resection and vascular invasion was defined as histologic invasion of vessel wall by tumor. They used both the radial and linear echoendoscopes. Thirty of 68 patients were eventually resectable. Sensitivity, specificity, PPV, and NPV of EUS were 63 %, 64 %, 43 %, and 80 % for vascular adherence and 50 %, 58 %, 28 %, and 82 % for vascular invasion, respectively. Similar to Rösch’s study, Aslanian and colleagues found that the NPV rose to 90 % for vascular adherence if only the portal confluence was considered.
