Abstract

CT scan and EUS play complementary roles in staging gastric cancer. CT scan is initially performed to detect local and distant metastases. Depending on institutional expertise, EUS may be considered for local staging. Laparoscopic staging may also be helpful in select patients. It is hoped that further improvements in these techniques will improve the ability to stage gastric cancer and thereby optimize patient treatment and outcome.
