Endoscopic ultrasonography and pathological findings in gastric disease

Endoscopic ultrasonography and pathological findings in gastric disease

Stomach & Intestine (Tokyo) 23(1): 75-82

The results of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) using a 7.5 MHz electronic linear array ultrasonic endoscope were compared with the pathological findings of resected specimens in seventy-four cases of gastric diseases. EUS can demonstrate the macroscopic intra-mural changes of gastric disorders. The intra-mural changes were reflected on EUS by the changes of echo-pattern and echo-level brought about the layer-structure of the gastric wall. Consequently, on the macroscopic level, it is possible to diagnose by EUS gastric diseases such as massive infiltrated malignant diseases, peptic ulcer and submucosal tumors. On the other hand, EUS is unable to demonstrate the microscopic intra-mural changes of gastric disorders. This limitation of EUS renders it unsuitable for correct assessment of diffuse infiltrated malignant diseases and for a qualitative evaluation of the diseases.
