Using virtual endoscopy, secondary lesions within the bowel might be identified in the sigmoid colon. This is based on a virtual 3-dimensional double-contrast technique. The limitations of CT are based on the limited differentiation of the wall layers. Additionally, partial volume effects lead to overstaging, especially T2 versus T3 and T3 versus T4, as well as limited information on the tumor involvement of lymph nodes. Local recurrence of rectal cancer meets the following criteria in CT: an enlargement of a presacral mass with an inhomogeneous appearance; additionally, asymmetric outlines and relevant contrast uptake indicate possible tumor recurrence.

The Swedish Rectal Cancer Group suggested that pre-operative therapy would approximately half the risk of local recurrence in any given group at risk [39]. This led to the consensus that irradiation reduced local recurrence, but the survival benefit remained unproven and neo-adjuvant radiotherapy is not without associated morbidity. The North Trent audit showed a higher than expected anastomotic leak rate (15%) and perineal wound infection rates (18%) following the introduction of pre-operative radiotherapy [40].
