Abstract

Low echoic lesions were histologically confirmed to be tumor deposits (20 percent) and metastatic lymph nodes (68 percent). Although these data show deficiencies and limitations of the accuracy of endorectal ultrasonography, they compare favorably with other series, and no other current technology can show similar accuracy.
