OBJECTIVE To prospectively assess the accuracy of gadofosveset-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for nodal staging and restaging in rectal cancer. BACKGROUND Accurate preoperative assessment of nodal disease in rectal cancer impacts treatment management. Staging with modern imaging techniques (computed tomography, MRI and endorectal ultrasound) is insufficiently accurate for clinical decision making. This study aims to assess the accuracy of MRI using a novel lymph node magnetic… CONTINUE READING
