Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare the accuracy of the EUS and CT scan for detection of the primary and metastatic carcinoma of the liver.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Secondary:
  • Determine the diagnostic yield of fine needle aspiration using EUS (EUS-FNA) in patients with suspected liver metastasis on EUS examination.
  • Compare the accuracy of the PET scan with EUS for the detection of the liver metastases.
  • Determine the safety of EUS-FNA in subjects with liver lesions.
  • Impact of the EUS on the management of the hepatocellular carcinoma
  • 2.2.5 To study characteristic echoendoscopic findings of the primary and secondary liver tumor.
