The objectives of this study were to compare tumour staging and volume assessment by examination under anaesthesia (EUA), transrectal ultrasound (TRU) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with invasive carcinoma of the cervix, and to correlate findings with long-term outcome following treatment by radiotherapy. Tumour staging was performed on 60 patients immediately before starting radiotherapy. Clinicians and radiologists performing EUA, TRU or MRI were blinded to the results of… CONTINUE READING
