Performed 3-D endorectal ultrasound in three patients with rectal cancer [2]. More recently, a comprehensive study involving 100 patients demonstrated encouraging results of 3-D endorectal ultrasound in the evaluation of rectal cancer [3]. Three-dimensional ultrasound facilitated the interpretation of ultrasound scans and improved the diagnostic confidence in approximately 60% of examinations. Comparable preliminary experience has also been reported for 3-D endoanal ultrasound imaging of perianal fistulas and sphincter defects.
