Abstract

Thanks to the improvements in sonographic equipment, transabdominal ultrasonography has recently been reported to be useful in the assessment of gastric cancer. This chapter describes the sonographic features of early and advanced gastric cancer. In particular, alterations of the gastric wall and perigastric findings that can suggest the disease and be useful in differential diagnosis and in staging of gastric cancer, are imaged and discussed.
