Abstract

In patients with advanced and recurrent colorectal cancer, surgical resection with clear margins is the greatest challenge and is limited by known anatomical constraints. Preoperative or intra-operative assessment of the limits of surgical dissection may help to explore the possibility of improving resectability through either targeted external beam radiotherapy or intra-operative radiotherapy. Professor Chang reviews the evidence base and potential advantages and disadvantages of this approach, whilst the expert panel agree a consensus on the evidence for assessment and therapy of such patients.
