Endosonography is helpful in managing patients with esophageal cancer due to its capacity to stage the tumor for the depth of tumoral invasion and the presence of metastatic lymph nodes. Thus, ES will help the surgeon to determine if surgery is advisable. If the patient does not undergo surgery, it will provide a very accurate prognosis and allow the adaptation of non-surgical multimodal therapy to determine tumor extension. Finally, following the initial phase of treatment. ES will be useful in the follow-up, especially to detect and stage recurrences.
