PURPOSE This study was designed to evaluate the application of three-dimensional (3D) transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) in diagnostics, staging, and treatment planning of rectal cancer. METHOD Transversal images, generated during conventional TRUS examination, are recorded by means of a specially designed computer-based system to obtain a 3D array of slices, covering the whole region of interest. Different structures (normal or pathologically affected) are segmented, isolated, and rendered using… CONTINUE READING
