AIM Colonoscopic high frequency mini-probe ultrasound was compared prospectively with CT in the local staging of colonic cancer. METHOD Consecutive patients undergoing surgical resection for colonic cancer were recruited. Preoperative 64-slice CT staging with multiplanar reconstruction was compared with colonoscopic high frequency mini-probe ultrasound using 12 MHz and 20 MHz probes. The three methods of staging (CT, 12 MHz ultrasound and 20 MHz ultrasound) were compared with the histological… CONTINUE READING
