The authors sought to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) performed with two different hypodense endoluminal contrast agents for the preoperative staging of colosigmoideal cancer. Seventy consecutive patients with an endoscopically and histologically proven diagnosis of colosigmoideal cancer underwent MDCT examination. Thirty-five patients were evaluated with water MDCT colonography and the remaining 35 with air MDCT colonography. Patients were… CONTINUE READING
