  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 Progress in the morphological diagnosis of the gastro-duodenal diseases, especially focused on the early gastric cancer and peptic ulcer, was reviewed mainly by the articles of the “stomach and intestine”. The radiologic and endoscopic diagnosis of the upper gastrointestinal diseases was almost established in 1970's. In 1980's, endoscopic ultrasonography was added to the diagnostic modalities. The technique of three-dimensional imaging such as virtual endoscopic using computed tomography has been developed recently but diagnostic ability of the new technique is not enough for practice. In the future, progress in the technology would improve diagnostic modalities and widen the range of choice. But the changes of socio-economic environment would lead to choose less invasive and less expensive diagnostic modalities whose diagnostic abilities are the same as conventional ones.
