Accurate clinical staging of gastric cancer is of great significance for choosing an optimal therapeutic schedule and evaluating the prognosis. In recent years,objective evidences have been provided owing to the use of diagnostic methods such as gastroscopy, endoscopic ultrasound, multi-detector row computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography-computed tomography, which have greatly enhanced the accuracy of clinical staging diagnosis for gastric cancer. This paper reviews the research progress in current clinical examining techniques for clinical staging diagnosis.

Key words: gastric cancer, clinical staging, endoscopy, imaging
