BACKGROUND This study was performed to verify reports of the decreased accuracy of endorectal ultrasonography (EUS) in preoperative staging of rectal cancer, and to compare the efficacy of 3-dimensional (3D) EUS with that of 2-dimensional (2D) EUS and computed tomography (CT). METHODS Eighty-six consecutive rectal cancer patients undergoing curative surgery were evaluated by 2D EUS, 3D EUS, and CT scan. RESULTS The accuracy in T-staging was 78% for 3D EUS, 69% for 2D EUS, and 57% for CT (P… CONTINUE READING
