abstract

  • Brush cytology and biopsy were specific but not sensitive methods for predicting residual cancer after CRT. However, cytology was superior. The current results indicated that brush cytology can be used alone to diagnose residual esophageal carcinoma, and awareness of specific diagnostic pitfalls will help pathologists improve its accuracy.
