Detection of rectal cancer and response to concurrent chemoradiotherapy by proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy.


INTRODUCTION To diagnose rectal cancer and monitor treatment response after preoperative concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) in rectal cancer patients using proton-1 magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS). MATERIALS AND METHODS We enrolled 134 rectal cancer patients before treatment, of whom 34 underwent preoperative CCRT and follow-up MR spectroscopy… (More)
