Recent progress of the data processing applied to ultrasound examination (US) madęeit possible to develop new softwares. The US workstation of last generation thus incorporated in their centre a computer allowing for a very precise treatment of the US image.This made it possible to work out new images like three-dimensional US, the US of contrast-harmonic associated with the intravenous injection with product with contrast for US and finally, even more recently, the elastography. These techniques, currently quite elaborated in percutaneous US, are to be adapted and evaluated with the echo-endoscopy (EUS). We thus will approach the three-dimensional echo-endoscopy successively, then the contribution of the products of contrast for US with the pancreatic echo-endoscopy and finally the elastography guided byendo-sonography.
