So You Think You Know About Radiology?

Organised by: Gina Brown (UK) Radiology Representative on ACPGBI Council
Supported by: Tom Cecil (UK), Peter Christensen (Denmark), Per Nilsson (Sweden)

Imaging to help surgeons with common dilemmas:

  • Case 1: An early rectal cancer/significant polyp – do I really need to perform a TME/APE? How to stage these more precisely – what does this mean for primary TEM/TAMIS/local excision procedures?
  • Case 2: Low rectal cancer – image interpretation: does this patient need an ELAPE? Preoperative therapy? Ultralow AR ? Intersphincteric APE?
  • Case 3: The disappearing tumour – what is the role of MRI? – what do we say to the patient now?
  • Case 4: The CRM is still involved despite preoperative CRT – how reliable is the MRI assessment? Next steps?
  • Case 5a and Case 5b: The preoperative CRM planes look clear on MRI – a good case for primary surgery without preoperative therapy – how can we be sure?
