Core Tip Endoscopic ultrasound staging of rectal cancer has higher accuracy rate than computed tomography (CT) scan. Unfortunately, with the current design of conventional oblique-viewing radial-array echoendoscope that cannot readily be introduced beyond rectum, staging of colon cancer beyond rectum nowadays depends on results of CT scan. With a design of the novel forward-viewing radial-array echoendoscope that can be easily passed through the entire colon, it was firstly used in this study for staging of colon cancer. The study showed feasibility of the scope and its superiority over CT scan in terms of accuracy rate of colon cancer staging.
