Core Tip This state-of-the-art review article covers current and future contribution of various imaging modalities in the diagnosis of colorectal cancer. Primary local staging, metastatic spread, restaging and posttreatment response evaluation are discussed in depth using emerging techniques such as virtual computed tomography (CT) colonoscopy, endorectal ultrasound and positron emission tomography/CT. The role and indications of more recently developed techniques as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with diffusion weighted images and hepatobiliary contrast materials are evaluated. The challenges and evolving role of functional imaging with MRI spectroscopy and hepatic transit time analysis using MRI and contrast enhanced ultrasound in the detection of liver metastases are also covered.
