Accurate staging esophageal carcinoma is quite important
for treatment decision. un to now, there is still no
available MRI technique to well address this need. With
the development of self-gating radial VIBE, we are able
to evaluate this new technqiue in a large esophageal
carcinoma population. The prelimary results shows
confident in T1 and T2 staging.
