This study compared MRI based on the combination of T2-TSE-BLADE and contrast-enhanced T1 radial VIBE (StarVIBE) against endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) for T staging of potentially resectable esophageal cancer (EC). The histology confirmation of the T stage was used as reference. The results showed that the combination of T2-TSE-BLADE and StarVIBE is comparable to EUS in T staging of potentially resectable EC with lesions of T1/T2 stage, and is superior to EUS with lesions of T3/T4 stage.
