Core Tip Computed tomography is currently the primary imaging modality for M staging. Evaluation of ascites by endoscopic ultrasonography is useful because it has a high probability for the presence of peritoneal metastases. Staging laparoscopy is still necessary in patients with locally advanced disease with no definite evidence of peritoneal metastases at imaging. The roles of 18F-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging need to be further explored. New imaging techniques and strategies are needed to improve M staging.
