 Today,Endoscopic Ultrasonography (EUS), along with X-ray radiography and endosocpy, is one of the main diagnostic methods in submucosal tumors (SMT)in the alimentary tract. Since, in almost all SMT cases, the surface of the lesion is covered with normal mucosa, it is important for its diagnosis and manegement to identify an SMT incidence site and its internal characteristics. EUS is especially useful for identifying the site of SMTs and visualizating its internal characteristics, which may lead to a tissue characterization in SMTs. We think the usefulness of EUS will be enhanced as EUS technology equipment to further developed. In this paper, we made a general description of EUS in SMT of the alimentary tract by introducing our examinations of SMT cases.
