Its spatial resolution is insufﬁcient to evaluate local extension, but it is often more speciﬁc than CT or US in detecting nodal involvement, keeping in mind that activity in a primary tumor can mask adjacent lymph node uptake. In 36 patients with a newly diagnosed esophageal cancer, 18F-FDG PET detected abnormal uptake in all (67); in those undergoing a curative esophagectomy, PET and CT correctly identiﬁed extent of nodal involvement in 76% and 45% of patients, respectively. The current primary role for PET is in excluding stage IV disease and in following patients postresection.
Unfortunately, these signs have a high falsepositive rate and they should be interpreted judiciously. Some of these patients are cachectic, however, and have little fat that can serve as a landmark. A CT-speciﬁc staging system is used by some to gauge intramural extension and adjacent structure involvement. Intravascular contrast deﬁnes major adjacent vessels. A lymph node transverse diameter of 10 mm or more is one criterion used to gauge lymph node metastases, but the results are disappointing.
18. Polypoid adenocarcinoma in mid-esophagus (arrows). 4). Information obtained from imaging is combined with other data to achieve a preoperative stage useful for subsequent prognosis and therapy. 20. Varicoid adenocarcinoma. A: The appearance superﬁcially mimics varices, but the folds are too sharply deﬁned for varices. B: A more advanced varicoid carcinoma. A concern is not staging but whether a tumor is resectable or not. Preoperative imaging is used to detect local and metastatic spread. Computed tomography complements rather than competes with endoscopy and barium studies, which are primarily diagnostic rather than staging modalities.
