Perfusion CT as a Predictor of Treatment Response in Patients With Rectal Cancer

A research study of rectal cancer perfusion (how blood flows to the rectum over time). We hope to learn whether perfusion characteristics of rectal masses may be predictive of response to treatment and whether rectal perfusion characteristics can be used to follow response to treatment.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
