This article focuses on a study related to oesophageal cancer staging by the nurse endosonographer. Opportunities to acquire the breadth of training acquired to meet the demands of diagnostic, oesophageal cancer, and interventional, lung cancer, pancreatic cystic lesions, EUS are few and hinder the expansion of EUS services. The study indicates the feasibility of extending the role of the NE to include radial EUS for oesophageal cancer staging. Such an approach would allow medically trained endoscopists to focus on interventional EUS.
