Abstract

The updated German S3 guidelines “Colorectal Carcinoma“ were created as part of the oncology program of the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies (AWMF), German Cancer Society and the German Cancer Aid under the auspices of the German Society for Digestive and Metabolic Disorders (DGVS) and they replace the previous guidelines from 2013. The main changes in the updated guidelines include the latest recommendations regarding endoscopy and adjuvant/neoadjuvant therapies as well as a complete restructuring of the section regarding therapeutic approach in metastases and in the palliative situation. The present manuscript discusses the importance of the current recommendations for radiological diagnosis and treatment and is intended to enhance the quality of patient information and patient care by widespread distribution.

Key Points:

  • Radiological recommendations for treating patients with colorectal carcinoma are presented.

  • The different possibilities of radiological imaging for diagnosis are documented in detail.

  • Radiologists should be acquainted with the different possibilities of oncological intervention in patients with colorectal carcinoma.
