Example text

1. 1 T Stage EUS is considered the most accurate modality for diagnosis and assessing the depth of tumour invasion as it allows differentiation of the five layers of the oesophageal and gastric wall and therefore the delineation of T1, T2 and T3 tumours (see Fig. 1). Simultaneous biopsies allow for histological correlation [1–3]. With technical advances in endoscopic ultrasound probes, the differentiation between T1m (mucosal) and T1sm (submucosal) oesophageal tumours is possible. This has important clinical implications in the choice of local ablative therapy or endoscopic mucosal resection [4].

SUV also has a strong positive correlation with body weight. Heavy patients have a higher percentage of body fat that contributes to body weight but accumulates little FDG in the fasting state, so standardised uptake values (SUVs) in nonfatty tissues are increased in larger patients. SUV normalised to lean body mass or body surface area have been shown to have a lesser dependence on body weight, although SUV normalised to body weight is still the most clinically used parameter. Many physiological factors can affect SUV, including scan delay time (accumulation of FDG continues to increase over time), patient resting state, temperature, blood glucose level, insulin levels and renal clearance.
