Preoperative staging of colorectal cancer: accuracy of single portal venous phase multidetector computed tomography

Published:September 23, 2013DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.clinimag.2013.08.003

      Abstract

      In this study, we aimed to investigate the accuracy of single portal venous phase multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) in preoperative staging of colorectal cancer. MDCT, surgery, and pathological results of 159 patients with pathologically proven colorectal adenocarcinoma were evaluated retrospectively. In T staging, the accuracy was 96% for ≤T2 tumors, 92% for T3 tumors, and 96% for T4 tumors. In N staging, the accuracy was 68% for N0 tumors, 74% for N1 tumors, and 71% for N2 tumors. In conclusion, the accuracy of single portal venous phase MDCT is reasonably high in T staging, but it is not sufficiently high enough in N staging.
