It is well known that synchronous cancers (incidence, 2%-11%) and polyps (incidence, 12%-58%) occur in patients with colorectal cancer. Magnetic resonance colonography (MRC) seems like the obvious choice as a diagnostic tool in preoperative evaluation, because it is noninvasive, and most of the colon can be evaluated. Furthermore, it has higher patient acceptance, and no sedation or radiation is used. The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of performing MRC preoperatively in an everyday clinical situation in a group of patients who were not offered a full conventional colonoscopy or in whom full conventional colonoscopy was not possible.
