AbstractBackground Endorectal ultrasound (ERUS) is an emerging technique for preoperative rectal cancer staging. It is an operator-dependent examination with accuracy closely related to endosonographer experience. In this study, we prospectively analyzed our results of ERUS staging for rectal cancer, aiming to determine its accuracy and to define the learning curve of the procedure.
