PURPOSE Clinical and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) characteristics at baseline and following chemoradiation therapy (CRT) most strongly associated with histopathologic response were investigated and survival outcomes evaluated in accordance with imaging and pathological response. METHODS AND MATERIALS Responders were defined as mrT3c/d-4 downstaged to(More)
573 Background: Neoadjuvant Chemoradiotherapy (CRT) and surgical resection is the current standard management for patients with locally advanced rectal cancer (i.e. T3 or 4 N0/1 M0) (LARC). Tumour predictive factors for response to CRT in rectal cancer remain controversial. Staging investigations are not standardised and MRI has not been used consistently(More)
INTRODUCTION Mucinous adenocarcinomas represent a potentially poor prognostic subgroup identifiable by imaging. We compared outcomes between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) detected rectal mucinous carcinoma and adenocarcinomas. The diagnostic performance of MRI compared with initial biopsy in detecting mucinous adenocarcinoma was also assessed. METHODS(More)
Pre-operative staging is an essential aspect of modern rectal cancer management and radiological assessment is central to this process. An ideal radiological assessment should provide sufficient information to reliably guide pre-operative decision-making. Technical advances allow high-resolution imaging to not only provide prognostic information but to(More)
The efficacy of response to preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in recurrent versus primary rectal cancer has not been investigated. We compared radiological downsizing between primary and recurrent rectal cancers following CRT and determined the optimal size reduction threshold for response validated by survival outcomes. The proportional change in tumor(More)
