In modern management of rectal carcinoma, the preoperative evaluation of disease parameters is important for selection of therapeutic options.

Abstract

In modern management of rectal carcinoma, the preoperative evaluation of disease parameters is important for selection of therapeutic options. Such parameters are currently defined through endorectal ultrasonography or endoscopic ultrasonography. A retrospective analysis of the parameters obtained with double-contrast barium enema (DCBE) and endorectal balloon computed tomography (CT) was conducted to verify the diagnostic reliability of the radiological techniques and to establish whether there is still an indication for their use.
