 EUS(endoscopic ultrasonography)has been used to diagnose SESCC(superficial esophageal squamous cell carcinoma)invasion depth and lymph node metastasis. A miniature probe is used to diagnose the depth of the tumor invasion. The diagnostic accuracy of EUS is higher than that of white-light imaging(WLI)and magnifying endoscopy with narrow-band imaging(ME-NBI). However, the additional benefit of WLI and ME-NBI is unclear. Currently, the diagnostic accuracy of tumor invasion depth for SESCC-suspected muscularis mucosa invasion by WLI and ME-NBI is not sufficient. Therefore, we predict that EUS is a meaning modality followed by WLI and ME-NI. Future multicenter studies are needed to determine the diagnostic accuracy of EUS and additional benefit of EUS to WLI and ME-NBI.
