Case Discussion

Pathologically-proven gastric antral adenocarcinoma which is the most common gastric malignancy and the third most common GI malignancy following colon and pancreatic carcinoma.

CT is currently the staging modality of choice because it can help identify the primary tumor, assess for local spread, detect nodal involvement and distant metastases.
