Core Tip Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) has played an important role in the diagnosis and management of numerous abdominal and mediastinal diseases. In the present paper, we discuss the current knowledge of EUS elastography, including the technical aspects, its applications in the differentiation between benign and malignant solid pancreatic masses and lymph nodes, and differentiation between normal pancreatic tissues and chronic pancreatitis. Moreover, the emergent indication and future perspectives are also summarized, such as the benefit of EUS elastography in EUS-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy, and its use for characterization of lesions in liver, biliary tract, adrenal glands and gastrointestinal tract.
