OBJECTIVE Our objective was to evaluate the accuracy of contrast-enhanced transrectal MR imaging in staging rectal adenoma and carcinoma by correlating with histopathologic findings. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Thirty-five patients underwent transrectal MR imaging on a 1.5-T superconducting unit using unenhanced T1-weighted and T2-weighted spin-echo and turbo spin-echo sequences, a dynamic gadopentetate dimeglumine-enhanced turbo fast low-angle shot sequence, and enhanced T1-weighted spin-echo… CONTINUE READING
