Abstract
Gastric cancer is one of the most common cancers and one of the most frequent causes of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Early detection and accurate preoperative staging of early gastric cancer (ECG) offers the best prognosis and is essential for planning optimal therapy such as endoscopic mucosal resection or gastric resection. Recent advances in computed tomographic technology and three-dimensional imaging software have enabled more accurate gastric imaging. Virtual gastroscopy (VG) is helpful in the detection and evaluation of EGC in the same way as gastroscopy. VG has a wider field of view than conventional gastroscopy, the angle of the virtual cancer can be adjusted omnidirectionally, and it has no blind point because retrospective reconstruction is available. Thus, VG is a promising method for evaluating gastric lesions despite its limitations. This report describes the clinical usefulness of VG with multidetector row computed tomography for EGC and axial computed tomography. © 2006 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.
