OBJECTIVE Accurate staging of mediastinal lymph nodes in patients with lung cancer is fundamental for their treatment and prognosis. The aim of this study was to compare the value of EUS and CT staging in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with postsurgical stage. METHODS Ninety two patients with NSCLC underwent EUS and CT for preoperative detection of metastases to the mediastinal lymph nodes. EUS examinations were done with the ultrasonic linear array scanning echoendoscope… CONTINUE READING
