PURPOSE To determine if computed tomographic (CT) texture features of primary colorectal cancer are related to 5-year overall survival rate. MATERIALS AND METHODS Institutional review board waiver was obtained for this retrospective analysis. Texture features of the entire primary tumor were assessed with contrast material-enhanced staging CT studies… CONTINUE READING
