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.

    BACKGROUND: The role of endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) to evaluate treatment response postneoadjuvant therapy for restaging esophageal cancer prior to surgical resection is uncertain. Accuracy of EUS is lower but potential to predict response to chemoradiation indicates that EUS may be helpful...
